Captain Angela Joseph-Gaffke, a veteran of Desert Storm and Desert Shield, was a special guest at the UW-Madison Women’s Hockey game on 2/13/11.  Captain Joseph-Gaffke dropped the puck to start the UW game against North Dakota.  The Badgers were victorious with the final score of 8-4 and were presented with the WCHA regular season conference trophy after the game.   The UW Athletic Department honored all veterans at this game with reduced admission.

Captain Joseph-Gaffke is a nurse and currently serves as the Wisconsin Army National Guard State Surgeon’s Medical Operation Officer as well as the Occupational Health Nurse-Specialist.  In addition to her wartime service, she has been deployed many times to countries in Europe and Central America.

The VA thanks Captain Joseph-Gaffke for her service and for representing women veterans at the hockey game.
