Meet General Grant

Image may contain: 1 person

Friday, September 13 6 p.m. Held at the Mt. Pleasant Church of God Social Hall at 936 W Main St, Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania 15666
Gunnery Sgt Kenneth J. Serfass was born in Bethlehem, PA. He joined the USMC in 1984 and his final tour was with the First Marine Division Band during Operation Iraqi Freedom and retired from the Marine Corps in July of 2004 to become a music teacher.
Ken was a civil war reenactor and now first-person impressionist and now with over forty years of study of his self-avowed childhood hero US Grant, he has created a niche as a full time professional living historian portraying Ulysses S. Grant.
It is with a profound honor that he tells the story of one of America’s greatest military leaders and Ken takes it very seriously to reaffirm Grant’s place of honor among the most respected people of our nation’s history.
