Memorial at Defense Logistics Agency honors Rozanski

A memorial honoring a Dublin national guardsman was unveiled this month.

A memorial for Capt. Nick Rozanski, an Ohio Army National Guard soldier killed April 4, 2012, while serving in Afghanistan, was dedicated Aug. 18 at the Defense Logistics Agency in Columbus where Rozanski worked.

Rozanski, a Dublin High School graduate, was hired at the Defense Logistics Agency in 2009 as a human resources technician, a news release from the agency said.

"Nick's life, military career and civilian career epitomized selfless service, dedication and commitment to the United States," Jill Dixon Cromer, director of DLA Human Resource Services for Department of Defense Customers, said in the release.

"Nick was a man whose life inspired others to serve with courage, integrity and selfless dedication," Cromer said.

"Nick had the ability to connect with anyone he met and make them feel part of his life. Nick was a loving husband, father, son, brother, friend and colleague, a proud member of the Ohio National Guard and DLA Human Resources."

"He was the definition of a team player," coworker Jason Clay said in the release.

The memorial outside the building where Rozanski worked includes a bench, soldier statue, buckeye tree, street light and recognition plaque.

Rozanski's wife, Jennifer, two daughters and other family members took part in the Aug. 18 dedication ceremony.
