“Shane Cantu’s sacrifice has greatly impacted the communities of Owosso and Corunna,” said Frederick, of Owosso. “This memorial connecting the two cities will honor his sacrifice and bravery.”

Cantu, a 2010 graduate of Corunna High School, was killed in August 2012 after insurgents threw an explosive over a wall at the base where he was serving in Afghanistan. Cantu was a member of the Army’s 1st Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team. 

Installation of the signage is expected to occur in the coming weeks.
