TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE INTERSECTION OF UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 17 SOUTH, HUGHES ROAD (S-10-738), AND OLD CHARLESTON ROAD (S-10-1024) IN CHARLESTON COUNTY THE "CLIFFORD V.

Whereas, on April 29, 2005, Second Lieutenant Clifford V. Gadsden, at the age of twenty-five, made the ultimate sacrifice defending his country, family, and friends while serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom in Taji, Iraq. While bravely serving his country and leading his soldiers, Second Lieutenant Gadsden was a victim of a roadside bombing; and
Whereas, Second Lieutenant Gadsden was born on August 6, 1979, in Charleston, South Carolina, the son of Clifford and Minerva Gadsden. He was raised in Red Top, South Carolina, in a Christian atmosphere in a very large and close family and community; and
Whereas, he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from South Carolina State University in 2003. In August 2003, he was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Transportation Corps through the Reserve Officer Training Corps at South Carolina State University; and
Whereas, during his military service, Second Lieutenant Gadsden received the following awards: National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and the Army Service Ribbon. He was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star Medal and the Purple Heart; and
Whereas, in June 2004, Second Lieutenant Gadsden married his true love, Erica, and together they shared a loving home with their two children, Kinshaza and Karistopher; and
Whereas, as a tribute to the bravery and heroism exhibited by Second Lieutenant Gadsden, it is fitting and proper for the members of the General Assembly to request that the Department of Transportation name an intersection in his native County of Charleston in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, request that the Department of Transportation name the intersection of United States Highway 17 South, Hughes Road (S-10-738), and Old Charleston Road (S-10-1024) in Charleston County the "Clifford V. Gadsden Memorial Intersection", and erect appropriate markers or signs at this intersection that contain the words "Clifford V. Gadsden Memorial Intersection".
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
