Christmas Time At The Armed Forces Retirement Home

Beautiful decorations, serene sentiments, and content residents are very much the part during the holiday season, at The Armed Forces Retirement Home, one of America's oldest veteran's retirement homes.  I have known this wonderful campus since 1998.   My introduction to AFRH, developed when I was asked to collaborate an Intergenerational Partnership with Middle School Students of Washington, D.C. and a nearby retirement center...and that is when I discovered this gracious place.  Presently, as I am helping to facilitate a "Reading Buddy" partnership with the residents of The Armed Forces Retirement Home and The International Charter School that resides on the campus of AFRH, I realize that some very worthwhile and ideal initiatives will always have a place for a dedicated volunteer.
