Siblings added to Delaware County

Armed Services Tribute Board


Delaware County Council honored U.S. Army Private Cameron Lumley and his sister U.S. Navy Seaman Rebecca Lumley by having their family place their photograph on the Armed Services Tribute Board during a ceremony on September 27.

Council welcomed their parents, Paul and Jayne Lumley of Boothwyn to the Government Center to post their children's photos on the Armed Services Tribute Board displayed in the lobby.

"As we go about our daily lives, it's easy to forget that brave men and women continue to risk their lives every day to keep us safe here at home. Delaware County is committed to remembering and to supporting our troops until they are safely home," said County Council Dave White.

"One way we honor our troops is by posting their photo on the Armed Services Tribute Board and by recognizing their families," White said. "Today for the first time we recognize siblings."

U.S. Army Private First Class Cameron Lumley grew up in Boothwyn and is a 2015 graduate of Chichester High School. Private Lumley completed his infantry school training at Fort Benning, Georgia. At a ceremony in August he received the coveted blue cord. He also completed his job training as a mortarman. He is currently a junior at Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, PA.

U.S. Navy Seaman Rebecca Lumley also grew up in Boothwyn and is a 2010 graduate of Chichester High School. After finishing her basic training at Great Lakes, Illinois Ms. Lumley traveled to Fort Sam in Houston, TX. There she graduated 3rd in her class to become a Navy Corpsman. She recently received an accommodation for finishing first in C school where she is training to be a surgical technician.

The Armed Services Tribute Board recognizes Delaware County's courageous men and women who are actively serving in the military. It offers an opportunity for residents and County employees to recognize members of the military and to write to them to show support.

Delaware County residents who have family members actively serving in the military are invited to submit a 4 x 6 color photograph of the individual, along with the soldier's name, town of residency and their official military address to The Public Relations Department, Room 226A, Delaware County Government Center, 201 W. Front St., Media, PA 19063.
