Join The Mission Continues 1st Platoon, VMC - Women Veterans Center and Travis Manion Foundation for a day of service at Thomas Edison High School in North Philadelphia. Women veterans and their supporters are invited to get their hands dirty while we spruce up sports fields, remove trash and weeds, paint, refurbish windows, and beautify Edison's Vietnam War Memorial Garden.
Edison High School, formerly located at Eighth and Lehigh streets, lost 64 of its alumni during the Vietnam War – the highest number of casualties from the war experienced by any high school in the U.S.
Volunteers of all ages and capabilities are asked to join us as we honor our nation's fallen heroes and unite the Edison community.
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
