HARRISBURG, March 25 –Centre County state Rep. Scott Conklin released the following statement congratulating Sgt. Adam Hartswick for his commitment to the U.S. Army following his retirement ceremony held today in Bethesda, Md.:

"Regretfully, I could not be with Adam today because my legislative duties find me in Harrisburg taking part in budget hearings before the House Appropriations Committee. However, my thoughts are solidly with Adam and his family.

"I would like to extend my personal thank you to an exemplary soldier and young man. Getting to know Adam through our local work together is a true privilege. The signing of the Sgt. Adam Hartswick Interchange bill into law is a career highlight of mine.

"Adam is a true inspiration to his family, the community he calls home and his fellow soldiers who are overcoming adversity just as he has.

"Sergeant Hartswick has a bright future ahead of him and I am certain that what he does in his next phase of life will be just as meaningful as his military service.

"Congratulations. Today, we salute you."
