From a very young age, Andrew Casalino has had a desire to be a part of the United States Military, specifically the Army. Over the years his desire to serve his country has only grown stronger.
Andrew began his path of service as a Boy Scout, and as he navigated through each rank he grew ever closer to his goal of gaining the title Eagle Scout. However, to achieve his objective Andrew was required to complete a community project of his choosing.
Drawing on his love for the military, Andrew decided that his community project would consist of creating concrete benches to honor the brave men and women who have served our country. It was at this point that, along with Andrew’s parents, Richard Coulter of Coulter Designs was able to step in and aid in this worthy project.
It was determined that the benches should be placed at the Navy Seal Museum in Fort Pierce. With the location chosen it was time for the work to begin. It took Andrew and his team three long months, often in oppressive heat, to complete the concrete benches, each one brandishing the Navy Seal emblem. However, once the project was completed it was clear that all of the time and effort were well worth it.
On Memorial Day weekend Andrew proudly presented the finished benches to the museum as a lasting commemoration to our nation’s troops.
