Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: November 22, 2019 11:48 AM
From: Senator Kristin Phillips-Hill
To: All Senate members
Subject: Corporal Michael Cohen Memorial Bridge
In the near future, I will introduce legislation that will honor and recognize a veteran of the Iraq War who lost his life in service to his country. Corporal Michael Cohen was a resident of York County and attended Dallastown Area School District. Cpl. Cohen was attending York Technical Institute and was studying to receive a computer degree when he chose to enlist in the Marine Corps.

Immediately following the attack on September 11, 2001, Cpl. Michael Cohen moved up his enlistment date and missed his graduation because he knew he wanted to serve his country during that important time. Cohen was involved in what would later be called the “bloodiest battle since Vietnam” and lost his life when he was killed in action in Fallujah, Iraq on November 22, 2004.

In order to honor this York County resident, this legislation will designate the bridge carrying Iron Stone Hill Road (State Route 2087) over Inners Creek near Lake Redman in York County as the Corporal Michael Cohen Memorial Bridge.

Please join me by cosponsoring this important legislation to honor a fallen Marine.

Introduced as SB1069
