Three streets in Aurora are being dedicated to honor three Marines who were killed while serving in Iraq. All three graduated from East Aurora High School.

The intersection of Fifth Avenue and Smith Street is being dedicated to Lance Corporal Hector Ramos who died in 2005. The intersection of Jackson Street and North Avenue is being dedicated to Lance Corporal Jesse DeLaTorre who died in 2007, and the intersection of Liberty Street and Schiller Avenue is being dedicated to Lance Corporal Edwardo Lopez who died in 2006.

Lopez's mother, Martha Lopez says she encouraged her son who wanted to be a Marine.

All three honorary street signs were revealed Sunday with members of the fallen Marine's families and Aurora city officials in attendance.
