Be A Proud NROTC Supporter

Welcome to the

support our troops

NROTC was founded in 2004 while American lives were being lost daily in Iraq.

While our mission has evolved over the last twelve plus years, initially we were providing Blue Star Service Banners to military families and Gold Star Service Banners to the families who had lost a loved-one in combat. Thousands have already been sent and this program continues today.

While not widely known, a Blue Star Service Banner displayed in the window of a home is a long standing tradition in America dating back to World War I.

Service Banner In Window

A Blue Star Service Banner hanging in a window lets others know that someone in the home is serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. A Gold Star symbolizes the loss of a loved-one while serving.

Also from our very beginnings we were providing recreational therapy for our wounded troops Walter Reed Army Medical Center and Bethesda Naval Hospital in the Washington D.C. area. The two hospitals have since merged. Our “Recreational Therapy” program continues today as we take veterans out fishing on the Chesapeake Bay. After a day’s fishing we provide them with a “Thank You For Serving” Certificate. Alva… a 92 year old WWII vet said, “No one ever did anything like this to thank me before.”






“In today’s tough economic times, many of our veterans, particularly those who have been recently deployed, through no fault of their own, find themselves unemployed, under-employed, homeless or AT-RISK of being homeless.”

“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.”

Earl F. Woodward

“I’m a Navy vet who served from 77 to 80 with an honorable discharge. I was living in the woods for over two years in a tent with no help. NROTC found me and gave me a place to live and a job. Now I am back on my feet and I have my own place to live and a job. I support the NROTC… You should too!

David W. Randolph

“I did two years in the Army from 1970 to 1972. After a scrape with the law and release from jail I needed to show my parole officer a permanent address within two days to avoid another 6 month stay behind bars. NROTC took me in immediately. We satisfied the parole officer. I found work, and now I have my own apartment and I am doing good. Thank You NROTC for helping me when I really needed it!”

Donald Pletka

“I was in the Army for nine years. I had bad luck in 2009. I lost my job and ended up living on the streets. One day at the end of 2010 NROTC found me and gave me a place to live and a job. I still work for NROTC. Thank You NROTC!”

Our latest initiative is a national effort to provide emergency financial aid to those who have honorably served and have met with hard times, or have fallen through the cracks when it comes to government assistance.
