One of our own Veterans Honored

US Army Colonel (Retired) Bobbie Fernander was honored as one of three gift bearers for the Veterans Day Mass with Bishop Frank J. Dewane at St. Patrick’s Church.

Bobbie is a dear friend to many of the members of our parish and respected by his brother Knights and members of the previous Incarnation Men’s Club.

Bobbie led a US Army battalion of helicopters in Vietnam, and served in Germany and Latin America, as well as at the Pentagon, where his officer training responsibilities included West Point.

The other two gift bearers were active duty army personnel Sargent 1st Class Daniel Sullivan and Specialist Nicholas Bushey seen below.


Thanks to Dan Marias, Brad Lawhead, and Art Reilly for the great photos!
