The 2nd Staff and Faculty Company, 71st Transportation Battalion, at Fort Lee has officially adopted J.E.J Moore Middle School in Prince George County. Sgt. 1st Class Randall Reed said the Adopt a School program is a way for the community to get to know the military and vice versa.
He said they’ll be starting small. Twenty-five soldiers will greet students as they get off of their buses on the second Wednesday of each month.
Moore Middle is the fifth school adopted by the unit. Others have expressed interest in Fort Lee’s Adopt-A-School program.
