HARRISBURG – The bridge carrying Iron Stone Hill Road over Inners Creek near Lake Redman in York County would be called the Corporal Michael Cohen Memorial Bridge thanks to a bill on the governor’s desk. Bill sponsor, York County Sen. Kristin Phillips-Hill said Cohen attended Dallastown Area School District and was attending York Technical Institute to receive a computer degree when he chose to enlist in the Marine Corps. Following the attack on September 11, 2001, Cpl. Cohen moved up his enlistment date and missed his graduation. Cohen was involved in what would later be called the “bloodiest battle since Vietnam” and lost his life when he was killed in action in Fallujah, Iraq on November 22, 2004. She said family and friends, along with patriots from the community, felt this would be a great way to remember this brave young man who perished while fighting for all of our freedoms we enjoy today.
