The Board of Commissioners congratulates Army National Guard, Sgt. Nickalaus Collin Ferrara, for completing a 12-month deployment in the Middle East. Ferrara arrived back in Camden County to a surprise celebration on Sunday to welcome him home.
Ferrara, 25, joined the National Guard in November 2015 and works as a combat engineer. He grew up in Collingswood where he graduated from Paul VI High School and went on to attend Norwich Military College in Vermont. When he’s not serving overseas, Nick serves his community at home by working full time as a police officer in Collingswood. During his time in the military, Nick has been the recipient of two Army Achievement Medals, an Army Reserve Components Achievement Medal, an Army Commendation Medal, a National Defense Service Medal and the Army Service Ribbon.
“Sgt. Nickalaus Ferrara has displayed true selflessness and patriotism during his time in the Army National Guard. On behalf of the entire Commissioner Board, we are so proud of, and thankful for, his service,” said Commissioner Melinda Kane. “We’re so excited to welcome this true American hero home to Camden County.”
In his spare time, Nick enjoys playing golf, watching movies and sports and hanging with friends and family.
