A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF HIGHWAY 1 FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH I-20 TO HIGHWAY 78 (RICHLAND AVENUE) IN AIKEN COUNTY "VETERANS MEMORIAL HIGHWAY", NAME THE PORTION OF HIGHWAY 25 FROM THE EDGEFIELD COUNTY LINE TO THE NORTH AUGUSTA CITY LIMITS IN AIKEN COUNTY "VETERANS HIGHWAY", NAME THE PORTION OF HIGHWAY 78 (RICHLAND AVENUE) FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH HIGHWAY 1 (YORK STREET) EAST TO THE AIKEN COUNTY LINE IN AIKEN COUNTY "GOLD STAR FAMILIES MEMORIAL HIGHWAY", AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THESE LOCATIONS CONTAINING THE DESIGNATIONS.

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly express the utmost gratitude to all veterans for their dedicated service and to Gold Star families, which have suffered the loss of immediate family members during their military service; and

Whereas, the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, along with their families, have made many sacrifices for the ideals of liberty and justice so richly enjoyed in this great nation. These patriots deserve the highest recognition, honor, and respect; and

Whereas, it would be only fitting and proper to salute and pay tribute to these heroes and their families for the supreme sacrifices they have made in protecting the freedom, democracy, and security of our State and nation by naming portions of road in the State in their honor. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:

That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, request that the Department of Transportation name the portion of Highway 1 from its intersection with I-20 to Highway 78 (Richland Avenue) in Aiken County "Veterans Memorial Highway", name the portion of Highway 25 from the Edgefield County line to the North Augusta city limits in Aiken County "Veterans Highway", name the portion of Highway 78 (Richland Avenue) from its intersection with Highway 1 (York Street) east to the Aiken County line in Aiken County "Gold Star Families Memorial Highway", and erect appropriate markers or signs at these locations containing the designations.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
