We hope to have children, youth, and families desire to serve veterans and service members through events with Youth for Troops. We ask that parents download and sign the Permission Slip and Code of Conduct forms for each child. These forms need to be turned in prior to participating in any event. The forms will remain valid and on file with Y4T until contacted in writing. Thank you.
