Friday, April 13, 2012 the overpass bridge on Highway E in Norwood that goes over highway 60 saw an addition. The bridge was dedicated to my grandfather's brother, Ova A Kelley, who received the Medal of Honor posthumously for actions on Leyte Island during WWII. The dedication ceremony was held in the Norwood School Gym and I was honored that almost all of my immediate family was able to attend. Below are a couple of pictures of them/us
The family has always referred to Pvt Kelley as "Art"., his middle name. That was what his Mother and Father called him and below is a picture of his resting place.
