Joining Guenst were State Senator Maria Collett, the Enterprise Fire Company, Kulick's family and friends, and county residents.

Kulick joined Alpha Company, 1st Battalion, 111th Infantry Regiment (Mechanized), PA Army National Guard, where he attained the rank of specialist.

He was deployed to Iraq in 2004 and was killed in action on August 9, 2005 in Bayji, Iraq, when a mine exploded in his Humvee and enemy troops attacked him with small arms.

John Kulick was born on November 17, 1969 and dedicated his life to firefighting and serving our local community.

Throughout his life he was extremely active with local fire departments, including the Enterprise Fire Company of Hatboro.

“John Kulick dedicated his life to serving others and we as a community are eternally grateful to him,” said county officials. “The John N. Kulick Memorial Bridge will help ensure John's legacy lives on in our community.”
