KENTWOOD, Mich. (AP) - A stretch of western Michigan highway has been dedicated to a Navy SEAL killed four years ago in Afghanistan.

The Grand Rapids Press reports (https://bit.ly/1MvOMNI ) about 200 people gathered Saturday as a five-mile stretch of M-6 was renamed the David Warsen Memorial Highway. The signs were presented during a ceremony at East Kentwood High School.

Warsen graduated from the Kentwood school in 2004 and enlisted in the Navy in 2009. The 27-year-old was among seven Americans and four Afghans killed in 2012 in a Blackhawk helicopter crash northeast of Kandahar.

His fiancee, Karlyn Deveau, said his loved ones “want Dave to be remembered,” and “seeing his sign on the highway will be a reminder to everyone.”
