FAIRBORN, Ohio (AP) — A section of a western Ohio road has been dedicated to a soldier who pulled two wounded comrades to safety before he was killed in Afghanistan.
Media outlets report a memorial service dedicating part of state Route 235 to Army Specialist Jesse Snow was held Thursday in a park just east of Interstate 675. The ceremony included the unveiling of a sign honoring Snow.
The Fairborn native was 25 when he was killed as his platoon was attacked by enemy fire on Nov. 14, 2010. Thursday's ceremony took place on what would have been his 28th birthday.
Snow was posthumously awarded the Silver Star, the nation's third highest combat medal, in a 2011 ceremony at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force near Dayton.
