A Rhinelander Street will honor a soldier killed of the line of duty.

Over the weekend, a ceremony was held to change from Military Road to Adams Way.

The street will memorialize Sergeant Ryan Adams-- the 26-year-old Rhinelander soldier killed in Afghanistan in October 2009.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs, Ray Zastrow, a retired Army captain from Rhinelander, spearheaded the renaming of the road along with fellow volunteers from Post 724.

The sign for Military Road will stay in place for one year. After that time it will be removed and Adams Way will be the official street marker.

Sgt. Adams was a 2001 graduate of Rhinelander High School.
