SGT Joshua Tomlinson Interchange
On September 11, 2013, the Joshua B. Tomlinson Interchange at Interstate 20 and Louisiana State Highway 531 between Minden and Dubberly was dedicated in honor of United States Army sergeant Joshua Tomlinson, who was killed in the line of duty in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. Tomlinson (born c. 1986) perished in a suicide bomb attack on May 18, 2010, while serving as part of a Personal Security Detail Detachment. He was based out of Kaiserslautern Germany in the 5th Battalion 7th Air Defense Artillery Regiment. Representative Gene Reynolds of Dubberly, who had been Tomlinson's principal at Lakeside High School, guided the bill through the Louisiana House of Representatives to honor the young soldier. "He will always be that student, with a smile and character that we would like from all our children. We now honor [him] ... with this tribute that keep his memory alive forever," said Reynolds.
