The newly re-named Sergeant First Class Sidney Hamer Memorial Bridge is in Spruce Creek, Huntingdon County.
Hamer earned 17 ribbons and medals, including the Bronze Star serving in South Korea. He came back and served as a township trustee.
His son Rick Hamer says it will be emotional every time he drives over the bridge.
