The Washington County Emergency Operations Center invites the public to watch the message above. THIS IS A HERO public messaging campaign emphasizes the importance of wearing a mask, social distancing, and washing hands to protect those most vulnerable in our community. Over the next several weeks, we will be releasing a series of videos that showcase heroes in our community.
Buck Cline of Williamsport, Maryland is featured in the first video release. Buck is a ninety-seven-year-old World War II Veteran who served in China-Burma-India as a mortar-man with the 475th Infantry Group. He is a Pangborn retiree and a proud father of four sons.
During COVID-19, the older population is most vulnerable. This population consists of our moms, dads, and grandparents. It is time for us to recognize that it is our duty to protect them. We need to protect our entire community!
Buck Cline protected our country and protected you. It is now time to practice social distancing, hand washing, and wearing a mask. IT IS NOW TIME FOR YOU TO PROTECT HIM!
To protect yourself and others from COVID-19, all citizens are encouraged to continue washing your hands, social distance, wear a mask, get tested, and stay at home when experiencing minor symptoms. Do your part to keep Washington County and the State of Maryland open for business!
