|Wednesday, November 16, 2011|
A plaque in memory of a young Army Lieutenant killed in Afghanistan in 2010 was recently dedicated at Kennedy University Hospital in Stratford. Wenonah, NJ, native Sal Corma II was killed at age 24 in April 2010, after waving aside 18 other soldiers to isolate an improvised explosive device. The dedication of the memorial plaque, which is located by two outside benches by the hospital’s main entrance, included a presentation of the Gloucester County Military Service Medal by USAF NJ National Guard Major Brad Thompson.
Pictured at the dedication ceremony are Sal Corma’s mother, Trudy, a Kennedy – Stratford nurse, and his father, Sal Corma Sr.
