FLORHAM PARK, NJ- The community of Florham Park supports and appreciates the troops that keep this country safe. This last year, recent Hanover Park alumnus and Florham Park native, Michael Fehrenbacher has responded to the call of duty and serves the country as a Private First Class of the United States Marine Corps.

Fehrenbacher attended boot camp and graduated from Parris Island, NC on February 24th, 2017. Bootcamp began at the end of November and was a grueling 13 weeks long. This was then followed by 59 days of combat training at Camp Geiner in North Carolina.

Fehrenbacher’s MOC (Military Occupational Specialty) is Mortarman, part of a specially trained group of soldiers that operate mortars on the battlefield. “I hope to further my skills in my MOS as my career goes on to make me a better asset to my unit,” Fehrenbacher went on to say.

The close knit nature of Marine life and the unit really drew him to the Marines. “My role model is my grandfather because he served in the Army in Vietnam,” Fehrenbacher said, “but the marines spoke out to me more because I saw and came to learn how they were more extreme and harder. Knowing I could be part of something that big and that close knit made me motivated to join.”

Fehrenbacher is currently stationed at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina where he serves to make his country and his community proud.
