Cadets Volunteer at Operation Community Connection

On May 4, cadets and senior members from MVCS volunteered at Fort Belvoir’s USO Warrior and Family Center.  On a day full of sunshine, they mixed with military families from on base and nearby to showcase CAP and how it serves the community.

Operation Community Connection is an event open to all service members and their families, but was designed to be especially helpful for those in the deployment process or new to the community. The Air Force Honor Guard’s Drill Team performance was a major highlight of the day, along with music, clowns, food, prizes and more.

The Warrior and Family Center opened in February of 2013.  It is the largest USO center ever built and also the first of its kind:  a place designed for wounded, ill and injured troops, their family members and caregivers.
