The Late Sergeant Richard Bush is described as brave by his sister.
The Marine received the Medal of Honor in 1945 after he put his life in jeopardy to save others, while taking on Japanese forces during World War II.
"He was wounded in the leg and they were treating him, the medics, and they threw a hand grenade in there and he fell on it, and saved the lives of several of his buddies," says Christine Russell, Bush's sister.
She says he lost an eye and part of his hand in the blast. He then spent the next several years in the hospital, where he found love.
"He met his wife in the hospital. She was his nurse and he married her, she was a wonderful person also," says Russell.
Despite his injuries, Bush's sister says he selflessly helped others up until he died in 2004, at the age of 79.
"He dedicated his life to his country, even after he was seriously wounded, he worked for the VA (veterans affairs) for years," says Russell.
She also says from the very first day he went into the Marines, the family knew he was going to make them proud.
"My grandpa was at the house and he told my mom, she was real upset, 'he's going to be famous,' that's what he told my mother the day he went into the Marines, and he was, he was famous," says Russell.
She says that while she misses her brother everyday, she is also very proud of all the things he was able to accomplish in his lifetime.
Monday's road dedication, put partly together by the Rolling Thunder, took place along North Jackson Highway and Veterans Parkway in Glasgow.
