DELMAR: Roadway renamed for fallen soldier

"By designating state roads as memorial highways, we pay tribute to the brave men and women who served our country," said Madison.

The Department of Transportation has installed two signs on State Route 140 noting the designation, one on the south-bound side at State Route 85, and the other on the northbound side at Kenwood Avenue.

Moshier was 25 at the time the Apache helicopter he piloted was shot down in Iraq on April 1, a few miles outside of Baghdad. A memorial service was held in Bethlehem this past spring for Moshier. He graduated from Bethlehem Central High School in 1998 and went directly to West Point.

"He was going to go to West Point, and he was going to fly," said County Executive Michael Breslin. 'He knew it; he had that commitment."

Moshier flew under the name Black Jack 16, and his co-pilot was known as Black Jack 23.

"Black Jack 16 and Black Jack 23 rest in peace," said Jim Moshier. "We have the fight and we will not fail.""
