A new stretch of highway connecting Kentucky Routes 220 and 313 in Hardin County has been named in honor of Specialist Nathaniel D. Garvin.
Garvin, a Radcliff native, died in Kandahar, Afghanistan two days shy of his 21st birthday in July 2010. He repaired electronics and avionics systems for the Army and had been assigned to Fort Campbell.
When he died, he left behind a wife and two children.
A dedication was held Friday to mark the occasion after the Kentucky General Assembly passed a joint resolution honoring Garvin earlier this year.
