NORFOLK-- Sailors from the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman took part in nine community service projects on Thursday. It was all a part of the ship's community service day.

Some of the sailors worked to deconstruct an old foot bridge over wetlands in Norfolk's Northside Park for instance.

Other projects included cleaning and restoring monuments in a Norfolk cemetery, and performing general maintenance, renovations and grounds keeping at schools, shelters, botanical gardens, a local mission and a children's playroom.

According to Lt. Aaron Kleinman, a chaplain on board the Truman, sailors from the ship have completed more than 120 community service projects and achieved more than 19,000 total community service hours in 2012.
