    1. See select board, this guy is so discombobulated living in Springfield he/she doesn't know where south main street is. Must have just moved here.

    2. I was born in Springfield and have lived here most of my life. There's a North Main and a Main but there is no South Main. The Community House has a Main St. address and below the bridge is Clinton Street.

    1. If you take the short drive up River Street across from where Dunkin Donuts is, you'll see "something to honor all veterans from every war"

  3. You're both missing the point. It's a very worthy honor so who really cares about the name of the street? I think anyone who lives in Springfield (or once did) knows where the bridge is.

  4. It has always been the Duck Inn bridge, and it always will be the Duck Inn bridge.

    It's just low budget, concrete, steel & asphalt construction of no historical, architectural, or engineering significance. Hardly worthy of any veteran's attention. Oh, that's right we get to feel good about ourselves for the effort.

  5. Naming the bridge, fine idea. The real take from the article and the comments, always take what you read or hear in the media with a grain (or salt shaker) of salt. When you actually know something about what the article is about, always amazing how inaccurate the media is.

  6. Wow, all of you! I'd be willing to bet the people talking crap have never seen combat or even been part of the military.
    I am proud of the 8 years I served in the Navy and luckily none of you can take that away from me.

  7. There was a young Marine killed in one of the sandbox wars, it would have been nice had he been remembered. Desert Storm Bridge may catch on as a name, hard to say.
