A bridge in Barrington, N.H., was named in memory of a Fort Lewis soldier who died in a training accident, Foster’s Daily Democrat reports.


From the article:


The bridge in town spanning the Isinglass River on Route 202 was renamed the Specialist Jesse Conger Memorial Bridge Monday in memory of the local man who tragically died seven years ago in an army training accident.


A special ceremony began in Pine Grove Cemetery off Route 9 Monday afternoon, where family, friends, local politicians and members of Rolling Thunder veteran’s advocacy group gathered to remember Conger and what he gave for their country. Conger joined the Army in 2000 as a Barrington resident and graduate of Dover High School. He was killed in a training accident after a five-ton truck rolled over on March 22, 2002, in Ft. Lewis, Washington.
