Causer Bill Honors Two Potter County Veterans Killed in Vietnam
10/25/2011
HARRISBURG – The state House today approved legislation authored by Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) to name two Potter County bridges in honor of area veterans.

House Bill 1862 designates the bridge carrying State Route 607 over Freeman Run in Austin Borough as the Captain Edgar E. Nuschke Memorial Bridge. It also names the bridge carrying State Route 872 over the east fork of Sinnemahoning Creek in the Wharton Township as the Private First Class Edward Ritsick Memorial Bridge.

“These men served our country honorably and made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom and our future,” Causer said. “Renaming bridges in their honor will keep their service foremost in the minds of our citizens.”

Nuschke served his country for 22 years in the U.S. Air Force. He served in World War II and Korea, and in 1966 was assigned to duty in Vietnam, where he was shot down and killed. A graduate of Austin High School Nuschke is now buried in the veterans section of the Glen Oaks Cemetery.

Ritsick joined the U.S. Army shortly after graduating from Austin High School and was assigned to the 65th Engineer Battalion, 25th Infantry Division. Shortly after arriving in Vietnam, Ritsick was killed in action in Hau Nghia Province, South Vietnam. A graduate of Austin High School, Ritsick is buried at St. Augustine Cemetery.

The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.
