Right after graduating high school, Michael joined the Carlstadt Fire Department, a tradition in the Schwarz family.  However, he never lost his motivation to join the military, made evident when he wore camo pants and combat boots under his high school commencement robe. To honor Michael’s legacy, the Schwarz family established a scholarship with the Carlstadt Fire Department.
