On Sept. 26, Rep. Kurt A. Masser joined the family of U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Thomas Allen Baysore at a highway memorial ceremony along State Route 54 in Northumberland County. On that day, a permanent reminder was placed on a local highway that will forever honor a hometown hero and a patriot. Exactly two years prior to that date (Sept. 26), Staff Sgt. Baysore made the ultimate sacrifice in selfless service to his country during combat operations in Afghanistan. He was a native of Milton, and a graduate of Milton Area High School who enlisted in the Army right after he graduated. Staff Sgt. Baysore is remembered as a loving father to his son, Darren – a devoted husband to his wife, Jamie – and a cherished son and brother to his parents and sisters. With the help of his family, Rep. Masser sponsored legislation earlier this year to dedicate this portion of the highway in his honor.
