October 1, 2010 – NROTC VICE PRESIDENT RUBS ELBOWS WITH FORMER U.S. SECRETARY OF DEFENSE – On this day, NROTC was represented by NROTC’s Vice President Michael Theriault, during the celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America, held at Fort McHenry in Baltimore, MD. During the event, Mr. Theriault had the opportunity to meet with the former U.S. Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, and briefly promote NROTC’s mission. Both NROTC’s President & Vice President were Eagle Scouts and both are current members of American Legion Post #148 in Essex, MD. Mr. Theriault performed double duty this day as he also serves as Assistant Adjutant, American Legion, Department of Maryland.

hq_1_400pxwSeptember, 2010: NROTC opens our “Veteran’s Safe Harbor, Housing Shelter.

NROTC President Tom Ruley secured an attractive rental agreement with a life-long family friend and World War II Navy Veteran, to use his then-vacant property in Baltimore, (Essex, MD), as a sanctuary where needy veterans can find transitional living and supportive services to help them recover from addiction and/or life’s misfortunes quickly so they can return to a successful, independent lifestyle.

Currently we are housing two Iraq/Afghanistan combat wounded veterans who are doing much better. After additional renovations are completed, housing will be available for approximately six to eight more veterans.

September 18th, 2010 – NROTC TREATS WOUNDED WARRIORS TO CHESAPEAKE BAY CRUISE & CRAB FEAST

hq_1_400pxwNROTC coordinated an event that brought some much needed recreational therapy to eight wounded troops and their spouses. The event was hosted by Eastport Yacht Club in Annapolis, Maryland. The troops were invited from the Warrior Transition Unit and Kimbrough Ambulatory Center at Fort George G. Meade. The Welcome Honors Line was formed by the American Legion Riders from Laurel Post #60.

Our honored guests were first treated to a tour by water of the U.S. Naval Academy. Coincidentally our boat just happened to be at the right place at the right time, at the starting line, when the Naval Academy and West Point Cadets kicked off a sailboat race. Then a cruise on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay.

The cruise was followed-up by a splendid outdoor crab feast on the grounds of Eastport Yacht Club. Our honored guests were introduced and members of the Yacht Club each had a chance to express their gratitude and best wishes to our guests, one on one. NROTC presented a Certificate of Appreciation to Eastport Yacht Club for hosting the event. Certificates of Appreciation were presented to each honored guest along with a dozen each, “Get Well Soon” cards, with personal notes of thanks and encouragement, which had previously been signed and returned by various NROTC donors. Pictured to the right, NROTC President Tom Ruley holds up a couple nice-sized crabs in the background. It was a beautiful day for a cruise and a crab feast. Everyone really enjoyed themselves!

August 19th, 2010 – NROTC DELIVERED 130 FOXHOLE PILLOWS TO DEPLOYING COMPANY OF COMBAT PHOTOGRAPHERS

NROTC was honored to see to it that 130 Foxhole Pillows which were made in part and with love by students of Tyler Height Elementary School in Annapolis, Maryland, were presented by NROTC’s Vice President Michael Theriault, at Fort George G. Meade in Maryland, to the soldiers of the U.S. Army 55th Signal Company, (Combat Photographers, “Eyes of the Army”), just prior to their deployment in support of the Global War on Terrorism.

A FOXHOLE PILLOW can be stuffed into a trooper’s ruck and be carried with them wherever they go. They are great not just in foxholes but come in handy to comfort an elbow while riding in a Humvee or any number of other “Gift From the Homefront” uses. Each of these pillows came with the name of the student who made it, along with a personal note to the soldier which was written in a way that only an elementary kid can write.

August 10, 2010 – NROTC RECEIVES LETTER OF THANK YOU FROM VIETNAM VETERAN
My name is Earl Woodward. I served as a Marine E-4 Corporal. I served nine months in Vietnam, (1973-1974), before becoming disabled. God presented me with the opportunity to get help from NROTC. I was really down on my luck and this organization truly helped me get back on my feet. NROTC gave me a roof over my head and gave me a job working for this great organization which allowed me to give back to other veterans that were also down on hard times. I will always be here for NROTC because I know they will always be here for me and other veterans.
Forever My Friends,
Earl F. Woodward

March 2, 2010 – NROTC REDEDICATES THE AMERICAN FLAG AT A LOCAL APARTMENT COMPLEX

NROTC’s Vice President Michael Theriault was responsible for seeing to it that the local kids residing at a local Essex, Maryland apartment complex would raise and lower the Flag of Our Beloved Country daily. They enjoyed doing this and it inspired patriotism in them until vandals cut down the flag and threw it on the street. Upon hearing this, immediately a new flag and halyard was purchased. The old flag was disposed of in the proper manner, and a new one was properly raised in it’s place. As the Flag was raised during the flag rededication ceremony, a local resident with stage four cancer cheered with pride as she so much loved seeing the Flag of Our Beloved Country flying outside of her apartment window.
