A busy Altoona bridge has been renamed to honor the nine service men from Blair County who lost their lives serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
More than a 100 people gathered for a ceremony in Juniata on Wednesday as officials unveiled a plaque renaming the Juniata North 8th Street Bridge as the Bridge of Freedom. Chief Petty Officer Jeffrey Rachwalski was among those who spoke at the ceremony. He told the crowd that the men paid the ultimate sacrifice and their service will never be forgotten.
Blair County owns the bridge. The Commissioners worked with local veterans groups to get funding for the plaque and to make the name change a reality.
