To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 918), to request the Department of Highways and Public Transportation to name the bridge over the Ashley River, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
SAMUEL R. FOSTER, for Committee.
TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF HIGHWAYS AND PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION TO NAME THE BRIDGE OVER THE ASHLEY RIVER WHICH IS PART OF THE MARK CLARK EXPRESSWAY IN CHARLESTON AS THE GENERAL WILLIAM C. WESTMORELAND BRIDGE.
Whereas, General William Childs Westmoreland was born in Spartanburg County on March 26, 1914; and
Whereas, after being educated in the public schools, he graduated from United States Military Academy, West Point, and distinguished himself with many honors; and
Whereas, his long and distinguished military record includes Superintendent of the United States Military Academy; Commander, United States Military Assistance Command, Vietnam; and Chief of Staff of the Army; and
Whereas, he served as Chairman of the Governor's Task Force for Economic Growth for this State; and
Whereas, General Westmoreland has distinguished himself and his native State in ways too numerous to mention; and
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly, recognizing his many accomplishments and outstanding contribution to our State, wish to name a well- known landmark in this State in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives, concurring:
That the Department of Highways and Public Transportation is requested to name the bridge over the Ashley River which is part of the Mark Clark Expressway in Charleston as the General William C. Westmoreland Bridge.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Department of Highways and Public Transportation Commission.
