Marine Corps Veteran Honored by Morris County & Mt. Arlington
Resolution Recognizes Korean War Service and 245th Anniversary of U.S. Marine Corps
Korean War Veteran Roger Rousch Sr., a former U.S. Marine Corps member and long-time Mt. Arlington resident, was honored today by the Morris County Freeholders and Mt. Arlington officials in a ceremony that also recognized the 245 Anniversary of the United States Marine Corps.
The 89-year-old veteran was presented with an official Morris County resolution honoring his military and public service at Memorial Park in Mt. Arlington, where Mayor Michael Stanzilis and a contingent of firefighters, police and residents also joined him.
“Mr. Rousch, you served honorably in the Korean War and endured the loss of many fellow Marines and friends. Yet, you did not lose your fighting spirit or optimism,” Freeholder Director Deborah Smith said at the ceremony. “You established a new life in Mt. Arlington and you continued to dedicate yourself to public service. You have spent 65 years on the Mt. Arlington Fire Department - 65 years and counting - and with this resolution, we thank you.” (MORE)
