CLEARFIELD — A Blair County man will be the guest speaker at an Armed Forces Day program Saturday at the Clearfield County Fairgrounds.

Nicholas W. Frick, a Central High School graduate and a post-911 combat veteran, will speak at the 10:30 a.m. program.

Frick served in the U.S. Army Infantry.

“My unit served as the Quick Reaction Task Force and worked with joint operations in Iraq in 2004,” Frick said.

He said he has been a veterans advocate and community organizer since 2008 and has developed and implemented psychosocial transitional programs to assist veterans to return to civilian life in Blair County.
