Street Renamed After Fallen Hero
Friday marked the eight-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, a day when a nation remembers the thousands who lost their lives in New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington D.C.
North Central Florida honored local hero marine Pfc. Donald Wayne Vincent. Vincent was killed in July while fighting in Afghanistan.
Dozens gathered on the corner of Northwest 23rd Avenue and Fort Clarke Boulevard for a special ceremony to honor Vincent by renaming Fort Clarke Boulevard in honor of the fallen marine.
"It is the beginning of our duty to make sure his service to this country is not and will not be forgotten" said Jim Lynch of the Alachua County Veteran Services Office.
