(WHAS11)—A stretch of Indiana highway bridge is being renamed three years after a local marine was killed in Afghanistan.

Sergeant Jeremy McQueary was killed three years ago while on a tour during a bombing in Feb. 2010, and will be honored by having the highway bridge he consistently drove named after him.

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence was at the Brown County State Park for an unveiling ceremony at the part of the bridge, which takes Indiana 46 over Salt Creek near the park’s entrance.

McQueary’s mother said she requested an honor along the highway because he often drove it from Columbus to visit his fiancé in Brown County. His son is now four years old.
