NASHVILLE, Ind. — A Marine killed in Afghanistan more than three years ago is being remembered with a southern Indiana highway bridge named in his honor.

The sign for the Sgt. Jeremy McQueary bridge was unveiled during a ceremony Monday with Gov. Mike Pence at Brown County State Park. The renamed bridge takes Indiana 46 over Salt Creek near the park's entrance.

McQueary died from a bombing attack in February 2010.

Debbie Kleinschmidt tells The Republic she requested an honor along the highway for her son because he often traveled it from his hometown of Columbus to visit his future wife in Brown County.

Rae McQueary tells WTHR-TV it's special that the state honored her husband's sacrifice and that she'll be able to point out "daddy's bridge" to their now 4-year-old son.
