God bless our recruits!!

About 60 U.S. Navy recruits could not be home for the holidays (probably the first time for most of them) and Gold Star parents, Bob and Linda Stack have decided to do something about that.

They plan to get these sailors to Christian Liberty Academy around 9am and are requesting an escort followed with a flag line and greeting as they spend a day away from the barracks.

After they all get inside, we are free to mingle with them while they have a continental breakfast, then they will be given phones to call home and computers to answer emails for the first time in 6 weeks. If you can, stay for a while. Ask them about what their Christmas' were like growing up. Each and every one of them has a story they want to share with you...

This will be a 2-part mission.... If you're pressed for time, you can greet the arriving escort at Christian Liberty with timjim or just do the escort from the oasis.

First part...
There will be an escort from the SB Lake Forest Oasis. All are welcome 2, 3, or 4 wheels.
We will intercept the buses as they are driving down I-294. Staging for this part will be at 8:15am. We will depart when they drive past.

Staging Time: 08:15 AM
Staging Location: SB Lake Forest Oasis
Ride Brief: 08:30 AM
Departure: When they drive past. Approximately 8:45

Second part...
Tim Lorman will be handing out the flags for the flag line at Christian Liberty Academy. NOTE.... This year the Recruits will be entering the school on the west side on Ridge St. Remember that once the recruits are inside, we are also invited inside to talk and hang out with them.

Staging Time: 08:45 AM
Staging Location: 502 West Euclid Avenue Arlington Hts, IL 60004

RC: TVG 630-408-0299
timjim - Tim Lorman 630-621-6025

BTW.... The recruits have no idea that they will be singing one of our favorite Christmas carols to their hosts at Christian Liberty Academy.... That song is ANCHORS AWEIGH...!!!

This will be our eighth year for this mission.

I will be printing this thread and presenting it to the recruits and to the church so please post your Thank You posts...

See you there!!!

Thank you United States Naval Recruits for your willingness to put your hides on the line for me and mine!

Merry Christmas!

And the bugles and the drums give you music;
And my heart, O my soldiers, my veterans,
My heart gives you love.”
