Sailor Visits Kids in Hospital

Posted: Updated:

Kids at Sanford Children's hospital in Bismarck welcomed a special visitor today.

As part of the U.S. Navy's Caps for Kids Program, Petty Officer Jeffrey Shirley presented Navy ball caps and other Navy mementos to children and gave them the title of "Honorary Sailor."

He says it's always an honor.

"To show the navy's commitment to our community. Our families obviously, they give us so much and its our way of returning that. Obviously these children are in a time of need. Anything we can do to help them, that's what we want to do. Without the community we wouldn't be the navy we are today," says Petty Officer 1st Class Jeffrey Shirley.

Caps for Kids started in 1990 and since then, more than 500 commands have donated caps and memorabilia.
