Sept. 11, 2001, changed all of our lives, including mine. I suddenly found myself writing as much about the thousands of local men and women – most of them in military reserves and National Guard – who had been sent halfway around the world to fight, and sometimes died, in places like Anbar Province and Kabul as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan ground on and on.

A portion of Bridgetown Road in western Hamilton County will be named Saturday in honor of a local Marine who died in Iraq nearly eight years ago.

The dedication of the Sgt. David Kreuter Memorial Highway will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Miami Township Community Center on Shady Lane at Bridgetown Road.

Kreuter, a 1997 graduate of Saint Xavier High School and the Three Rivers School District, was one of 14 members of the Marine Corps Reserve's Lima Company killed in a bomb blast in August 2005.
