Highway Dedication Planned For Fallen Soldier

A section of U.S. Highway 169 in Owasso will be dedicated to the service of a fallen soldier on Saturday.

The highway will be dedicated to Sgt. Schuyler B. Patch of Owasso who was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2009.

He was assigned to the 2nd Squadron, 106th Cavalry Regiment, 33rd Infantry Brigade Combat Team of Kewanee, Illinois.

The dedication ceremony will be held at 1:00 PM at Tyann Plaza, 9455 Owasso Expressway Frontage Road in Owasso.

Sen. Rick Brinkley and Rep. David Derby authored Senate Bill 1320 which designates U.S. Highway 169 from 86th Street North to 96th Street North the "Sgt. Schuyler B. Patch Memorial Highway."
