Aldersgate, 186th Dance Valentine's Day Away

Members of the 186th National Guard Unit made Valentine's Day extra special for residents of Aldersgate.

About 35 members put on their dress uniforms and took part in a banquet and dance Thursday afternoon.

Many of the residents got to the dance with the airmen and women.

"It makes us feel good," said NCO Association president, MSGT Crystal Cummings. "We do a lot of other community service projects throughout the year. It makes us feel good to be able to come together and dress up and the residents love it. And we love it just as much as they do. Just to give back to what we consider the greatest generation."

The Valentine's Day dance has become a tradition for the 186th at Aldersgate.
