CORINTH, W.Va. (AP) - A bridge in Preston County has been named in honor of a soldier who was killed during World War II.
Media outlets report that the USAAF Sergeant Everett Wayne “Bud” Sell Memorial Bridge was dedicated on Saturday. The bridge is located on West Virginia Route 7 in Corinth.
Sell was a gunner and a member of the 773rd Bombardment Squadron stationed at Celine Army Air Base in Italy. During a mission on Aug. 23, 1944, Sell was lost while dislodging a turret on the plane after a fire broke out. His remains were never found.
