THE COMMITTEE ON

INVITATIONS AND MEMORIAL RESOLUTIONS

To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4245) to request the Department of Motor Vehicles name a department facility in honor of Congressional Medal of Honor recipient Kyle J. White and place appropriate markers or signs at that facility containing, etc., respectfully

REPORT:

That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:

JIMMY C. BALES for Committee.

            

A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES NAME A DEPARTMENT FACILITY IN HONOR OF CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR RECIPIENT KYLE J. WHITE AND PLACE APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THAT FACILITY CONTAINING THIS DESIGNATION.

Whereas, as a committed serviceman, Kyle J. White of Fort Mill, whose father was a Special Forces soldier during the Vietnam War, enlisted in the United States Army on February 15, 2006; and

Whereas, on November 9, 2007, while serving as a radio telephone operator with Company C, 2nd Battalion Airborne, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade during combat operations against an armed enemy in Nuristan Province, Afghanistan, Specialist White and his comrades were returning to Bella Outpost from a shura with Aranas Village elders when they were ambushed by enemy forces from elevated positions; and

Whereas, he returned fire, was briefly knocked unconscious when a rock-propelled grenade impacted near him, provided medical assistance to several of his injured comrades, secured a radio from a deceased soldier, and provided information and updates to friendly forces who provided precision airstrikes to stifle the enemy's attack which ultimately permitted medical evacuation aircraft to rescue him, his fellow soldiers, Marines, and Afghan army soldiers; and

Whereas, there is no greater or more courageous sacrifice a man can make than to risk his life for a noble cause as Kyle J. White has done. To honor his valor, Kyle J. White was presented the Congressional Medal of Honor on May 13, 2014; and

Whereas, the members of the General Assembly would like to bestow special recognition upon Kyle J. White by having the Department of Motor Vehicles name a facility in his honor. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:

That members of the South Carolina General Assembly request the Department of Motor Vehicles name a department facility in honor of Congressional Medal of Honor recipient Kyle J. White and place appropriate markers or signs at that facility containing this designation.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
