Class Visit

A class from the Atlantic County Institute of Technology visited the 177th Fighter Wing. They received a mission brief, spoke to fighter pilots at an F-16 static display and learned about the propulsion system on the jets and the aircrew flight equipment the aviators use.


Community Service

On December 4th, Cadets from the New Jersey Youth ChalleNGe Academy volunteered at Liquid Church in Princeton, NJ who partnered with Rise Against Hunger to help pack meals for families in need. The meals were distributed to families in Haiti. Their goal for this location was to make 200 meals per person and a total of 50,000 meals. With the Cadets help, they exceeded that goal with 360 meals per person and a total of 70,200 meals alone were made in Princeton!



American Red Cross Service to Armed Forces volunteers delivered crossword puzzles and games, along with Girl Scout cookies, boxes of candies, and personalized cards for residents celebrating August birthdays at the New Jersey Veterans Home at Paramus.
