TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE BRIDGE THAT CROSSES THE MIDDLE TYGER RIVER ALONG SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAY 296 IN SPARTANBURG COUNTY "U.S. ARMY CAPTAIN JOHN DAVID HORTMAN BRIDGE" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS BRIDGE THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "U.S. ARMY CAPTAIN JOHN DAVID HORTMAN BRIDGE"
Whereas, Captain John David Hortman was the son of Brenda Touchton Jones and the late John Wilmer Hortman, and a member of Central Church of Christ; and
Whereas, a native of Inman, South Carolina, he was a 1999 graduate of Byrnes High School, and a 2004 graduate of the United States Military Academy; and
Whereas, while in high school, he was elected Student Body President, attended Palmetto Boys State where he was elected Lieutenant Governor, and attended Boys Nation where he was appointed Secretary of State; and
Whereas, during his distinguished service in the military, Captain Hortman received the Bronze Star Medal, Meritorious Service Medal (posthumous), Air Medal, Army Commendation Medal, National Defense Medal, Iraq Campaign Medal, and Global War on Terrorism Medal; and
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly were sadden when they learned that he was killed during a training accident in Fort Benning, Georgia on August 8, 2011; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to dedicate a highway facility in his honor in his native Spartanburg County as a lasting memorial to his service to this State and our nation. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request that the Department of Transportation name the bridge that crosses the Middle Tyger River along South Carolina Highway 296 in Spartanburg County "U.S. Army Captain John David Hortman Bridge" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this bridge that contain the words "U.S. Army Captain John David Hortman Bridge"
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
