An army veteran named David Garalla spoke out at yesterdays DuBois City Council meeting against the naming of a bridge after Josh Martino a local man who died in a training accident near Los Vegas.
 
Garalla said that he does not mean to disrespect Martino or his family he just feels there are many other war heroes who may also deserve the honor. Most of the bridges in the area have been named after war heroes. City Manager Herm Suplizio said the council does not make the decision whether or not to name a bridge after Martino and the decision will have to be made by Representative Matt Gobler.
