The Northport-East Northport varsity football team visited the Northport Veterans Affairs Medical Center on Dec. 9 to watch the Army v. Navy game with the veterans in residence.

This event was one in a series of activities that the football team conducts with the veterans during their season. The team has had them as guests for a Friday night dinner, and have also honored them at games.

A dozen of the athletes and four coaches attended the event, and the veterans were very excited to see them. Many of the veterans were more excited to interact with the students than to watch the game. The residents of the VA shared some interesting stories and experiences with the members of the team.

“It was quite a rewarding experience,” said Coach Patrick Campbell.
