The New York stop on our Operation Enduring Service campaign tour has a special feel to it, for obvious reasons. As we continue to honor those who were inspired into service 20 years ago by the tragic events of 9/11, our Service Platoons and volunteer force are rallying around a project not far from Ground Zero in New York City, where this journey of service began for so many.

The New York Platoon’s operational focus is to work with its communities to re-imagine and reinvent spaces and places; strengthening the connections between the people and places they share to support an evolution of what the community is known for.

Please join us in service on September 18th at the 9/11 Memorial Rose Garden in Sunset Park, Brooklyn as we honor all those that serve our nation by cleaning up and rejuvenating this Memorial Rose Garden and Grove and returning it to its former glory.

On this August day of service, our platoon hosted a service project meant to not only give back to South Central LA, but to invest in the youngest members of our community. Our platoon was at the Wanda A. Mikes Early Education Center which serves as a childcare/development center for the youth of Los Angeles.

There was a good mix of building, painting, and landscaping projects that will help the school provide quality educational opportunities for its students.
