MNE proudly sponsors patriotic banners

Friday, June 29, 2018 - 11:00am

Mercyhurst North East joined in the effort to honor the community’s veterans this summer through the North East Veterans Banner Project. The banners honor two of our own MNE Police and Safety staff for their service to country, community and campus and are located on West Main Road near Sanders Markets.

Charles Rosequist, head of Police & Safety at MNE, served in the U.S. Army Military Police during the Cold War. He was a sniper on an SR team. Upon completion of his military service, he became a patrolman in the Borough of Wesleyville, then served the North East Police Department from 1982-2010, retiring as Chief of Police.  He is proud to carry on a legacy of service that began in the American Revolution.

Larry Occhibone served as a staff sergeant and police officer in the U.S. Air Force at Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas and Pease Air Force Base in New Hampshire.

Veterans who’d like to join the ranks of MNE students may qualify for benefits. Contact the admissions office at 814-725-6144 for more details.
