COMMENDING MAJOR GENERAL T. ESTON MARCHANT, THE ADJUTANT GENERAL OF SOUTH CAROLINA, UPON HIS BEING NAMED "SOUTH CAROLINIAN OF THE YEAR" BY WIS-TV IN COLUMBIA AND ADDING THE VOICES OF THE MEMBERS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY AND ALL SOUTH CAROLINIANS IN EXPRESSING APPRECIATION FOR THE DISTINGUISHED SERVICE OF THE ADJUTANT GENERAL.
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly were delighted to note that Major General T. Eston Marchant, the Adjutant General of South Carolina since 1979, was honored by being named "South Carolinian of the Year" by WIS-TV in Columbia; and
Whereas, this signal honor, which puts General Marchant in very distinguished company, serves to confirm the high esteem in which members of the General Assembly, and all South Carolinians, especially those serving in the National Guard, hold General Marchant; and
Whereas, in his distinguished career as Adjutant General he has presided over an unprecedented expansion of the South Carolina National Guard and through his devoted and unflagging leadership has promoted the modernization and readiness of all National Guard units; and
Whereas, with an all-volunteer military, the role of the National Guard has been recognized as an important and integral part in the plans for maintaining the national security of the United States and defending its interests around the world; and
Whereas, his dedication is reflected in the consistent outstanding rankings given to South Carolina's Army National Guard and Air National Guard; and
Whereas, at a time when the armed forces of the United States, including elements of the South Carolina Army and Air National Guard, have been called to service to assist, together with a broad coalition of nations, in the liberation of Kuwait and the destruction of the aggressive potential of the current government of Iraq; and
Whereas, the outstanding service being rendered by our National Guard elements in this campaign reflects great honor not only on the individuals and units involved but on the Adjutant General whose service played an essential role in insuring the capability of these units. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly commend Major General T. Eston Marchant, the Adjutant General of South Carolina, upon his being named "South Carolinian of the Year" by WIS-TV in Columbia and adding the voices of the members of the General Assembly and all South Carolinians in expressing appreciation for the distinguished service of the Adjutant General.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Major General T. Eston Marchant, Adjutant General of South Carolina.
