Ulrich Honors Marine Graduate
Ulrich said, “We should never pass up an opportunity to show our troops and veterans how much their sacrifice means to all of us. Anything that we can do to thank them, lift their spirits, and honor their service is our responsibility as Americans. On behalf of a grateful city, I want to congratulate Private Schwoebel and thank him for his service to our country. He has made us all very proud.”
Schwoebel, a 2008 graduate of Beach Channel High School, was joined at the ceremony by his mother, Joanne Schwoebel, and his aunt, Barbara Buonocore, both of Ozone Park. He leaves next week for combat training at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
