Child & Youth Programs Feature Story

Welcome 2019! Another year to look back upon and be happy to have been part of. Through these articles you have likely rendered that I enjoy and am passionate about serving Military kids & families. This is intensified when I meet community members, organizations, and businesses that are also enthusiastic about giving back to this community.

On a snowy day in late November I had the pleasure of being part of a special delivery intended for VTNG Families. General Dynamics-OTS, Inc. and the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) came together, once again, to provide 100 tickets for The Polar Express™ Train Ride. On Sunday 9 December

myself and SPC Petersen got to play Santa’s Elves, distributing those tickets, and candy canes to the families. Special thanks to General Dynamics and AUSA for making this possible!
