“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 Chairman Mario J. Civera Jr.

“One way we honor our troops is by posting their photo on the Armed Services Tribute Board and by recognizing their families,” Civera said. “Today we recognize Marine Corps Lance Corporal Shane Donnelly.”

Lance Corporal Donnelly grew up in Media and is a 2013 graduate of Penncrest High School. On February 22nd, 2016 Lance Corporal Donnelly enlisted in the Marine Corps. Exactly a year later Donnelly has completed his MOS as a Fire Direction Control Specialist.
