Sunday was two years to the day that Matthew Seidler was killed in Afghanistan by a roadside bomb.
Family and friends of the airman gathered at Peterson Air Force Base on Sunday to remember him by dedicating a memorial and renaming a street on the base.
Seidler Street and the memorial will be the cornerstone and entry to the future Peterson Explosive Ordnance Disposal facility and training area.
Seidler was an EOD technician who neutralized roadside bombs in combat. Matthew Seidler was with the 21st Civil Engineer Squadron at Peterson.
