Perry County Bridge Named to Honor Marine Lance Corporal Jason Frye

HARRISBURG- The bridge on Route 233 that spans Sherman Creek in Tyrone Township, Perry County has been named in honor of Landisburg native Jason Frye, Sen. Greg Rothman (R-34) announced today.

Jason attended Mt. Zion Lutheran Church and graduated from West Perry High School as well as Cumberland Perry Vocational Technical School prior to his enlistment in the Marine Corps. He sought military service as a means by which to live out his values of faith, family, and friends.

Lance Corporal (LCpl) Frye was assigned to the Golf Company “Raiders” 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force out of Camp Lejune, North Carolina and deployed to the Middle East in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.  He was killed while conducting combat operations near Fallujah, Iraq.

“LCpl Frye’s desire to serve, his commitment to protect our national security, and to secure freedom for others is truly humbling,” Rothman said.  “I’m deeply grateful for Jason’s selflessness and I trust that the Lance Corporal Jason Frye Memorial Bridge will stand as visual reminder of Jason’s life, heroism, and sacrifice,” he continued.  “We vow to always remember LCpl Frye and to keep his family and friends in our prayers.”
