A Landmark Day at Your National Park



It was a red-letter day today as the Park recognized Volunteer, Jim Rosebrock, the very first inductee of Antietam National Battlefield's "Volunteer Master Ranger Corps".



Jim is surrounded by his colleagues following the presentation of this very important recognition of his 
considerable degree of commitment, enthusiasm, and interpretive talent in helping Antietam National Battlefield maintain its high standard of excellence.




Jim's daughter Rachel, a high school senior and also an Antietam volunteer, represents the future of our volunteer corps, and demonstrates that the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree as far as excellence, altruism, and commitment are concerned.




It really can't be overstated what a rare and noteworthy achievement this is.  It was an exciting day for all of us.
