A local community came together Saturday to remember the names of two heroic men who died while serving our country by naming two bridges after them.
The S-Bridge near Bella Via was dedicated to and renamed the "US Army Sgt. Matthew D. Hunter Memorial Bridge".
Mother of Sgt. Matthew Hunter was honored to have her son remembered.
"It's nice to have the community support, but it never replaces the son," said Hunter.
Farther down Route 40, the Bridge street Bridge was dedicated to and renamed the "Captain David Van Camp Memorial Bridge".
The Wheeling Park High School Band was at the dedication playing to honor the men who made, what one speaker called, the supreme sacrifice.
