He is a 2015 graduate of Voorheesville High School. 

He is part of the 2nd battalion 108th infantry regiment in Utica, NY having completed his training at Fort Benning, GA earlier this year.

Justin lives in Voorheesville along with two other members of the Army National Guard, Justin Burke who is an infantry specialist also based in Utica and Tyler Kelafant a specialist combat medic based in Latham.

The three friends were teammates on the Voorheesville Blackbirds football team and are volunteer firefighters with Voorheesville Fire Department.

Stepping up to serve both their community and their country is important to these young men while they pursue their careers.
