OSCEOLA MILLS – A bridge dedicated today in Rush Township will carry signage noting it is named for Lance Cpl. Michael B. Segich, who was mortally wounded May 12, 1970, while serving in the Vietnam War.

Segich’s family joined Reps. Dallas Kephart (R-Clearfield/Cambria) and Scott Conklin (D-Centre) in dedicating the bridge, which was authorized through Act 17 of 2023.

“The signs placed on Curtin Street today will help us all reflect on Lance Cpl. Segich’s service and sacrifice. The Lance Cpl. Michael P. Segich Memorial Bridge is just a mile from the 18-year-old’s final resting place in Umbria Cemetery,” Kephart said.

“This young man from Stumptown served his nation with honor, tenacity and leadership,” Conklin said. “These are aspirational attributes we can remember as we cross this bridge in Osceola Mills.”

Curtin Street (Pa. Route 3049) is used by about 2,300 motorists a day.

Segich enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1969 and served with the Force Logistical Command, 1st Military Police Battalion, 1st Force Service Regiment, B Company in Quang Nam, Vietnam.
