Volunteers of the USS JFK Project are proud to be participating in the statewide Veterans Appreciation Day, in which students from high schools and middle schools around Rhode Island will visit Quonset Point to meet and interview veterans, ask questions and interact with each other. Veterans are encouraged to wear their uniforms and bring memorabilia of interest.

After conducting the interviews, students will then write essays entitled “What Military Service Means to Me.” The Suzanne M. Henseler Foundation and the West Warwick Veterans Council will present a check for $1,500 to the school with the best essays, which they will then be able to donate to a veterans charitable organization of their choice!

If you are a veteran in the local area and are interested in being a part of this event, please contact Sean Henseler at or call 401-439-3649.
