HARRISBURG – Rep. Joe Hogan (R-Bucks) announced today that Gov. Josh Shapiro signed into law Senate Bill 621
, that officially renamed the Trenton Road Bridge in Middletown Township after local veteran and hero, Staff Sgt. Jae S. Moon.
“I am pleased to announce the governor has signed Senate Bill 621 into law,” said Hogan. “I’ve known about Jae’s life and service for a long time, that is why I made it a priority that he is recognized and his memory forever honored. This is one way to do so.”
Moon was born in South Korea in 1985 but spent most of his life as a Pennsylvania resident. He graduated from Neshaminy High School in 2003 and enlisted in the United States Army. His dream was to use the GI bill and ultimately become an FBI agent. On Dec. 25, 2006, Moon died due to injuries received when an IED detonated near his vehicle. He was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star. Moon is the only Middletown Township resident killed in action during the Global War on Terror. The renamed bridge will now be recognized as the Staff Sgt. Jae S. Moon Memorial Bridge.
Senate Bill 621 is an omnibus piece of legislation which incorporated a variety of standalone designations. House Bill 1711
, Hogan’s standalone legislation, was incorporated into Senate Bill 621 by amendment.
“Staff Sgt. Moon gave his life while defending our country,” said Hogan. “I am proud to see Senate Bill 621 signed into law so we can honor Staff Sgt. Moon and his sacrifice.”
