To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 3411), memorializing Congress to provide for a National Cemetery, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
ADDISON G. WILSON, for Committee.
MEMORIALIZING CONGRESS TO PROVIDE FOR A NATIONAL CEMETERY TO BE LOCATED AT FORT JACKSON IN SOUTH CAROLINA.
Whereas, veterans of the United States armed services and the veterans' survivors and their families who reside in the Midlands area of South Carolina in and around the capital city of Columbia, as well as in western and northern South Carolina, presently must use the national cemeteries in Florence or Beaufort -- cities which are considerable distances from their homes; travel to these cemeteries places an undue burden on these deserving citizens; and
Whereas, the need exists for the location of a national cemetery in the Columbia, South Carolina, area where Fort Jackson is situated; and
Whereas, sufficient unused land exists on the Fort Jackson installation for use as a national cemetery, and such a cemetery should be established on this military base at the earliest possible time. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, memorializes Congress to take the necessary steps to provide for a national cemetery to be located at Fort Jackson in the State of South Carolina.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, and the eight members of South Carolina's Congressional Delegation, all at Washington, D.C.
