Plaque dedication at Somerset Armory

By BG Robert E. Sembower Jr. Somerset Daily American

On September 11 a plaque was dedicated and will be displayed at the Henry K. Fluck Armory (Somerset) to commemorate (Company C, 103rd Armor Battalion from September 13 through Dec. 19, 2001 temporary morgue operations) for the significant role by which the Armory was utilized in the aftermath of the Flight 93 recovery operations.

The plaque was to be dedicated by the Adjutant General of the State of Pennsylvania, MG Wesley Craig. However, turbulent weather conditions prevented the TAG from attending and participating in the dedication ceremony. The plaque was received by Col. James Chisholm, Commander of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude and appreciation to the following individuals who participated in the plaque dedication ceremony at the Henry K. Fluck Armory on September 11.

In attendance were: Col. James Chisholm; Jeff Reinbold, Superintendent, Flight 93 National Memorial; Capt. Thomas Dearborn, Commander USS Somerset; Col-R John Hugya, Chief of Staff for the late Congressman Jack Murtha; Wallace Miller, Somerset County coroner; Miss Bella Baumgardner, student representative; the Rev. Roger Forry, Carl Metzger, representative, 69th Legislative District; Chuck Schrankel, representing the Honorable Congressman Keith Rothfus, 12th Congressional District; Somerset County commissioners John Vatavuk and Joe Betta; Major Timothy Moreau, Executive Officer 1-110th Infantry; BG William Colvin (R-PA), James Shull, Armory support and the Officers and Soldiers of Company C, 110th Infantry, 28th Infantry Division (M).
