OPERATION PAPERBACK / STARS AND STRIPES
Operation Paperback / Stars and Stripes club is for students in support of our servicemen and women. We are dedicated to making the lives of actively enlisted military men and women a little happier, and to supporting their families here at home. Activities involve sending paperback books to deployed soldiers, working with local military organizations to support their efforts, and raising student awareness of our past and present military.
Our meeting times vary, depending on our project. All meetings are in the College/Career Conference Room (next to Guidance).
