Officials from Bucks County have come together with a local veteran to honor those residents who lost their lives fighting for their country.

Representatives from the Bucks County Government, headquartered in Doylestown, met with Korean War veteran Jerry Jonas to honor those who died in the war at a local memorial. Commissioner Gene DiGirolamo and Matt Allen, Director of Bucks County Veteran Affairs, were also present for the ceremony.

Yesterday marked the 70th anniversary of the official end to that war, which saw approximately 36,000 U.S. military servicemembers killed as a result.

“Special thank you to the Marine Corps League Color Guard who always show up,” the Bucks County Government said online. “And thank you, to all who served!”

The Bucks County government regularly hosts ceremonies and memorials to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their fellow countrymen.

Just recently, a bridge in Bedminster, which crosses the Tohickon Creek, was dedicated in honor of William James Erkes Jr., a United States Army 2nd lieutenant who was killed in Vietnam in 1970.
