Rte. 205 At Hartwick

Renamed For Marine

Who Died In Vietnam

Sergeant Winslow

HARTWICK – Route 205 through Hartwick hamlet will be named in honor of Marine Corps Sgt. John Kempe Winslow under legislation signed into law today.

The bill (S.3658/A.6670) sponsored by state Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, and Assemblyman John Salka, R-West Edmeston, pays tribute to the decorated patriot who was killed in action during the Vietnam War in 1969.

The local soldier, a machine gunner, was assigned to Vietnam on Sept. 15, 1968, and died in an accident in Quang Tri Province the following July 30.
