HONOLULU — JROTC cadets from Kahuku High School visited veterans at the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Center for Aging at Tripler Army Medical Center, here, recently.

Cadets chose to visit the nursing home as their JROTC Service Learning Project, an event that encourages cadets to go out into the community. Service Learning experiences can become the starting point for reaching out, doing something good for others and making the world a better place.

The visit included a medical staff briefing and a visit with veterans. Cadets also toured the facility and learned the difference between in- and out-patient care for veterans.

During the hands-on portion, cadets learned about physical therapy and equipment used for rehabilitation.

Cadets ended the visit with cultural dances and several songs, as the veterans got ready for lunch.
