Petty Officer First Class Joshua Candon made his third visit to Northeast Elementary School as he visited pre-K and kindergarten classrooms on May 17.

The Naval officer last came to the school in September 2016, when he presented a folded American flag that had been flown during several Joint Task Force missions. Mr. Candon recently returned from a deployment in Africa, and during that time Northeast students sent his unit personalized cards for Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Easter, as well as candy, Girl Scout cookies and other goodies.

During his recent visit, Mr. Candon showed students an African war club and answered questions about his role in the military. He also thanked the students for their kind words and generosity during his recent deployment. Students, in return, shouted “Thank you for your service” as he left each room.
