The National Honor Society continues their support of Operation Beachhead and Veterans. For Veterans' Day, the National Honor Society sponsored, Greenlight A Vet. School members were asked to bring in a photo of a US Veteran family member or friend. The photos were displayed in the school mall area. For each person that brought a photo, a donation was made to Operation Beachhead. Each person bringing in a photo was also given a green light bulb to place in a visible location in their homes. This green light bulb is a symbol of appreciation and support for veterans.


The National Honor Society of High Tech HS In North Bergen NJ made a generous donation to honor veterans and, in so doing, honored Dan Beecher, a colleague, for his service to his country. Dan Beecher was  a humble Vietnam veteran who received the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star.
