McGinn Returns From Iraq

Kevin McGinn, Rockaway resident and graduate of Beach Channel High School, recently returned home after five years in the Marine Corps.

McGinn served as an avionics technician aboard aircraft carrier, USS Enterprise, which was deployed outside of Iraq.

He received the "Outstanding Volunteer Of The Year" award for his efforts in organizing Marines For Voluntary Duty at his station in Beaufort, South Carolina. He also received civilian awards and was twice nominated as Marine Of The Quarter.

McGinn and his family are lifelong residents of the Rockaways. His mother and brother, Roseanne and Thomas, are residents of Dayton Beach and grandparents, Bob and Helene McGinn, are retired in Florida.

McGinn will leave the Marines as a Sergeant and plans to attend the University of Virginia.
