Steelers Super Bowl champ Rocky Bleier speaks to veterans, New Castle community
Four-time Steelers Super Bowl champion and Vietnam veteran Rocky Bleier made a stop at a New Castle church Sunday morning.
Bleier spoke during an installment of the The Church of Genesis' "Winning in Life" message series. The theme for Bleier's speech was "Fighting Back."
During his speech, Bleier spoke on the importance of taking an active role in your community, and making a positive impact on others.
"We didn't get to where we are by ourselves, we got here because of other people, interactions that have made an impact on our lives," said Bleier during his speech.
Plans for the "Winning in Life" message series were unveiled in early September by Damian Williams, senior pastor at the Church of Genesis. The series was made possible by the generosity of sponsors New Castle Industrial Railroad and First Choice Federal Credit Union, and the people of Church of Genesis.
Bleier also served in Vietnam, receiving a Purple Heart and Bronze Star for his time at war. He says it's especially important to him provide to fellow veterans.
