Reflections, Advice and Lessons Learned from the Veterans of Northbridge

Throughout the month of November we have collaborated to celebrate the Veterans of Northbridge and the rich history of the amazing men and women living in our communities. Their stories of bravery, dedication and sacrifice are the markings of individuals who have truly lived well and loved life.

He was a 1st Lieutenant Army Quartermaster Corp and served for 2 years.  He went on to be 2nd in command at the officers club in Fort Lee, Virginia.
