Road dedication honors OH Marine killed in Iraq

CINCINNATI (AP) — Dedication of a portion of a highway in southwest Ohio is honoring a U.S. Marine from Ohio who was killed in Iraq in 2005.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/13vjWPA) reports that the dedication Saturday in Miami Township in Hamilton County honors Marine Sgt. David Kreuter.

Kreuter was one of 14 Marines killed in Iraq on Aug. 3, 2005 when their vehicle hit a roadside bomb. The Marines served with the 3rd Battalion 25th Marines Lima Company.

The ceremony at the Miami Township Community Center honors the dedication of the Sgt. David Kreuter Memorial Highway that includes a part of Ohio 264 from the city of Cleves through Miami Township and into Green Township.

Kreuter’s father, Ken Kreuter, said he was grateful that the state of Ohio allows such tributes.
