Presenting the Colors
At a ceremony at Westport Police Headquarters today, Police Officer Michael Ruttenber, a U.S. Marine Corps Reserve staff sergeant, presented the U.S. Marine Corps Colors to Chief Dale Call, on behalf of the Marines of 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion, Bravo Company. During their deployment in Afghanistan in 2011, they were the recipients of donated foods, snacks and personal hygiene items collected at the Westport Police Department and shipped to Bravo Company. Public Safety officer, Chris Proudfoot, also a former Marine, led the collection drive. According to officer Pete Biagiotti the colors, bearing the commemoration to Bravo Company, will be permanently displayed in the Police Headquarters classroom. Pictured (l-r) are Public Safety Officer Chris Proudfoot, Chief Dale Call, Police Officer and Staff Sgt. U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Michael Ruttenber, Police Officers Sean Kelley, Don Rice, and Pete Biagiotti. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
