Cam has visited us in the past and will be coming to see us again this year. She will share her leadership journey and discuss her current assignment in the military as a First Lieutenant and scout platoon leader at the 82nd Airborne Division. She will encourage the girls to consider the military as a career option. Cam will speak about the US Army and roles in the military for women. We will then make paracord bracelets and write letters of thanks, which will be sent to our service men and women. This is a great opportunity for girls and troops both young and older to participate in a night of learning, service and fun.
