Saturday, Sept. 16 a portion of Route 118 in Yorktown was closed for a procession and ceremony dedicating part of the roadway to fallen special ops pilot from Westchester County.

The ceremony began at Kear Street and Route 118 and went north of Underhill.
31-year-old Major Army Capt. Clayton Carpenter was killed in 2014 during a training exercise.

Carpenter was piloting a Blackhawk the day he died that made a rough landing near an army base in Savannah.

State lawmakers wanted a way to honor his sacrifice, and worked with the Governor to approve a portion of Route 118 to be named "The Army Major Clayton Carpenter Memorial Highway."

Governor Cuomo signed the bill sponsored by State Senator Terrence Murphy and State Assemblyman Steve Katz last year.

The portion of 118 dedicated in Major Carpenter's honor goes from Route 118 and Underhill Avenue to Route 118 and Route 202.
