The Service of Burnzie's Battalion in Action
Sharks defenseman Brent Burns embodied the mission of his foundation, Burnzie's Battalion, on Monday afternoon, honoring servicemen and women at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Palo Alto with a surprise visit.
Since being traded to San Jose in June, Burns has made an indelible mark on the Bay Area community, frequently taking time out of his busy schedule to serve those around him. San Jose Mercury News writer Mark Emmons joined Burns on his trip to the VA Hospital on Monday and his story appeared in Tuesday's print edition as well as online.
