Children of fallen soldiers experience USNA

| February 09, 2015, 04:04 PM | 0 Comments

On Saturday, Jan. 31, nearly 50 surviving children of America’s fallen military experienced “A Day in the Life of a Midshipman” at the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) with the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). The children,ranged from ages 4 to 19, and learned about leading and mentoring others, overcoming adversity, and being physically fit.

The first of its kind, this partnership between the USNA and TAPS pr0vides young survivors from the Virginia, DC, and Maryland areas with the military connection that so many lose after the death of a loved one in service to our nation. Midshipmen from the USNA took part in this one-day event as part of a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day-related service project.

Judging from the smiles all around–a job well done!
