The dedication ceremony was held at the bridge in Upshur county on Sunday May 27, 2012. An honor guard from the 1/509th at Fort Polk was present, as well as members of the 509th PIB WWII Living History Group. Victor Osburn's nephew Joe Osburn, who was instrumental in having the bridge dedicated to his uncle's memory, had graciously sent me an invitation to the ceremony. Unfortunately, being in the process of relocating to the other coast, I was unable to attend. However, I was able to watch a well done video clip from local TV news WDTV covering the dedication. Congratulations, Joe. It looks like the event was a success.
