Adopt A Kid Adopt A Vet

This program is a major activity of the VMP Committee and began in the fall of 1999 at the Village Elementary School of Lady Lake, it was created to fill a serious “gap” in our children’s education, the absence of any meaningful instruction about what a Veteran is, or their sacrifice’s to preserve freedom and democracy, about our nation’s heritage, and respect for its flag.

 The program serves elementary schools—grades 4 & 5 in the tri-county area. It’s success is spreading across Florida and the nation! The fact that our nation has been savagely attacked by forces trying to destroy our very existence has underscored the importance of such a program. As a nation at war this affords an exciting and rewarding mission of our Veterans to fulfill. Hours required are few but rewards are many.
