Sarpy County on Thursday unveiled a street named in honor of fallen U.S. Marine Cpl. Daegan Page.
A portion of Gertrude Street from 157th and Emiline Streets to South 162nd Avenue and Harrison Streets now carries a “Cpl. Daegan Page Street” honorary designation.
“By dedicating this roadway as Cpl. Daegan Page Street, we are doing our part to make sure no one forgets Daegan’s sacrifice or the indelible mark he left on his family, our community and this world,” said Commissioner Angi Burmeister, Vice Chair of the Sarpy County Board.
The Board unanimously approved a resolution to dedicate the street to Corporal Page earlier this year. Page was among 13 U.S. service members killed in an August 2021 attack in Afghanistan.
The sign unveiling ceremony included comments from Burmeister, Bill Williams from Patriotic Productions and members of Cpl. Page’s family.
Also at the ceremony, Sheriff Jeff Davis introduced the Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office’s newest K9, named Daegan in honor of Cpl. Page.
