Join the Flag Line for US Navy Sailors Christmas Morning

Posted on December 21, 2023 by Published by

Dear Veterans and Friends:

Please join us for a very special Christmas in Arlington Heights.

On Christmas morning, Christian Liberty Academy (CLA) in Arlington Heights will host 45 sailors from Naval Station Great Lakes .  This will be our eleventh year of hosting sailors on Christmas Day!

These sailors cannot go home for Christmas. So CLA and Arlington Heights will do our very best to give them a Christmas almost as good as home.  This includes a full Christmas dinner; unlimited treats; free phone calls home all day; video games and TV (all the stuff not allowed for them on base); and lots of well wishing.

A BIG part of this effort comes from the hundreds of people on Christmas morning who will offer a warm welcome to these young men and women.  There will  the flag line along Ridge Avenue manned by hearty volunteers.

All are welcome to greet the sailors when they arrive – including a Flag line along Ridge Ave (See map).  Please arrive at CLA by 9:00 am.

It would only take an hour or so of your time, but it would mean so much to these great young people.  We can’t overstate how much this means to them.

Please join us on Christmas Day 2023 to welcome and thank these wonderful young people.
