After his death, a memorial to Glover’s service was set up in Iraq by an NYPD officer serving there. On Tuesday, the City Council approved a resolution naming dozens of city streets in the names of those who served their nation or their city.

One of those being honored is Lance Corporal Michael Glover, USMC, who was killed by a sniper’s bullet in Fallujah in 2009.

The intersection of Beach Channel Drive and Beach 134 Street in Belle Harbor, near where Glover lived, will be named for him in a ceremony that will take place sometime this month.

Glover, a graduate of Xavier High School and SUNY Albany, was just beginning Pace University Law School when Muslim terrorists brought down the World Trade Center, killing Glover’s friend Charlie Heeran.

Instead, he joined the Marine Corps and was sent to fight in Iraq.

He was the recipient of the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal. Lance Corporal Michael Glover was killed in action on August 16, 2009.
