On December 6, NJROTC volunteered their time to the Federal Health Care Center located in North Chicago, also known as the VA hospital. The highly enthusiastic cadets decorated Xmas trees throughout the VA facilities. NJ calls this yearly community service project “Operation Xmas”, this is one of the community service projects that most cadets truly enjoy doing because they are giving back to our nation’s veterans in a special way. Many of the disabled veterans and staff members sincerely appreciated the cadets for volunteering their time and effort. They made sure that the cadets felt at home and wholeheartedly welcomed them to their facilities.
