Portion of Route 300 designated “Gold Star Families Memorial Highway”

ALBANY – A portion of State Route 300 in the Town of Newburgh is now designated as “Gold Star Families Memorial Highway.” The governor signed legislation sponsored by Senator William Larkin.

“Families who have lost a loved one in service to our nation have made the ultimate sacrifice and I am proud to honor them with the dedication of State Route 300 in Newburgh as ‘Gold Star Families Memorial Highway’,” Larkin said. “The signing of this legislation will show that these families and the sacrifices they have made will never be forgotten.”

Renate DeAngelis, a Gold Star Mother and Orange County resident, said the naming is “a very special and appropriate gesture.” Her son, ET2 Christopher DeAngelis was assigned to the USS Start when he was killed in action in the Persian Gulf on May 17, 1987.
