NADRA’s New Jersey Chapter recently announced the official plans and build for their latest Deck For a Soldier® project. The NJ Chapter plans to build in the Fall of 2013. Local member volunteers will complete construction, and NADRA member vendors will provide all products. A ribbon cutting ceremony & celebration will be held after the project is completed.


The local soldier is Sean O’Connor from Brick, N.J. He served 20 years in the marines and Army National Guard, did 3 combat tours and is now retired. He was in Desert Storm and retired as a Sergeant First Class with many medals. He was also an instructor at Fort Dix.
