National Veterans Service Committee Activities

April 2021

Spring is here! It is time to get out for a breath that fresh air and pray the world becomes a safer place.

Our Veterans Committee purchased coffee to put into the welcome home kits. Thank you, Manny, for driving Phyllis Willever and I. Thank you to the managers of Shop Rite for the few extra cases of coffee, Mike Ferraro for setting this transaction up and to Nick Tonachio for meeting us to deliver the coffee home for the welcome home kits.

We donated four cases for coffee to the USO to treat our troops deploying and returning home from deployment. Thank you, MJ, for taking care of those who serve.

At base their has been many retirements and promotions. I’m sad to see them go but I am proud to know them and thank them for there service. Chief Sebrena Flagg Briggs has been instrumental in helping us continue chief AK’s legacy of the Holiday Breakfast. Although she has retired she will come back to assist us again. God willing we can get back to thanking our military! As a thank you to the Chief I made her a blanket and mailed it to her home. Looks like she liked it. Thank You Chief.
