TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 701 IN GEORGETOWN COUNTY FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH NORTH STREET TO ITS INTERSECTION WITH BROWNS FERRY ROAD "AIRMAN FIRST CLASS CARL ANDERSON, JR. MEMORIAL HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE SIGNS OR MARKERS ALONG THIS HIGHWAY THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "AIRMAN FIRST CLASS CARL ANDERSON, JR. MEMORIAL HIGHWAY" IN HONOR OF A BRAVE SON OF SOUTH CAROLINA WHO MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE WHILE DEFENDING HIS COUNTRY IN IRAQ.
Whereas, Airman First Class Carl Anderson, Jr., was the son of our colleague the Honorable Carl Anderson, Sr., and his wife Doris Anderson of Georgetown County; and
Whereas, he was a 2001 graduate of Georgetown High School who was voted most popular in his senior class, excelled in the high school's ROTC program, and joined the United States Air Force upon graduation; and
Whereas, Airman First Class Anderson made the ultimate sacrifice for his country when he was killed when his vehicle was destroyed by a homemade explosive near the City of Mosul in Iraq on August 29, 2004; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper for the members of the General Assembly to pause in their deliberations to pay tribute to this son of South Carolina by having his memory preserved for all generations by having a portion of United States Highway 701 in his native State named in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, request that the Department of Transportation name the portion of United States Highway 701 in Georgetown County from its intersection with North Street to its intersection with Browns Ferry Road the "Airman First Class Carl Anderson, Jr. Memorial Highway" in honor of a brave son of South Carolina who made the ultimate sacrifice while defending his country in Iraq.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
