Army to Review Las Vegas Hockey Team’s Use of Golden Knights

The Las Vegas Sun reports that “a National Hockey League expansion team that plans to call itself the Golden Knights has caught the attention of Army officials because of the parachute team that goes by the same name.”

“The Vegas Golden Knights, who begin play next year, announced their moniker last Tuesday.”

“The U.S. Army Parachute Team, which is based at Fort Bragg, has used the Golden Knights name since the 1960s, said Alison Bettencourt, a spokeswoman for the Army Marketing and Research Group in Arlington, Virginia. The group serves as the Army-level headquarters of the Golden Knights.”
