Roadway gives perpetual honor to U.S. military

Veterans, March Air Reserve Base representatives and Riverside County officials clap after the unveiling of a road sign bearing the new name of a stretch of I-215 at a dedication ceremony at Riverside National Cemetery, June 4. The 4-mile stretch of road, which runs from Highway 60 (north) to the Ramona Expressway (south), will now be known as “Armed Forces Freeway.” The Caltrans-approved signs, paid for by Riverside supervisors, were installed this week. “These signs will be visible every day to motorists and serve as a reminder of the sacrifice our veterans have given for our country,” said Ken Rolene, Jr., assistant cemetery director. Col. Jeff Robertson, director of staff, Fourth Air Force, said,”This highway is a tribute to all our colleagues who lie here and whose sacrifice gave us our freedoms.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Maj.
