A group of Coast Guard recruits were treated to a Thanksgiving meal in Atlantic County Thursday.
AMVETS Post 911 and VFW Post 2189 hosted recruits from Coast Guard Training Center Cape May for a Thanksgiving meal Thursday afternoon at their post in Somers Point.
Organizers with the VFW and AMVETS say they host the recruits as a way to give back to the community.
"I think it's good for just community support, because we're all veterans, and our attitude is give back, we're all very successful, we're fortunate that we don't have problems, so we have the opportunity to give back to the community and we take advantage of that," said Bob Frolow, Commander of VFW Post 2189 in Somers Point.
In all about 60 recruits enjoyed a Thanksgiving meal and an
afternoon of watching football.
