|Subject:||PFC Brent A. McClellan Memorial Bridge|
|In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation designating a bridge on State Route 1011, also known as Castile Run Road, over the South Fork Tenmile Creek between Jefferson Township and Clarksville Borough, Greene County, as the PFC Brent A. McClellan Memorial Bridge.
A native of Clarksville, Private First Class Brent A. McClellan was drafted into the United States Army during the Vietnam War. He was assigned as an infantryman to the 1st Platoon, B Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Cavalry, 1st Cavalry Division.
On February 28, 1966, at 21 years of age, PFC McClellan was killed in an ambush by hostile forces in Binh Dinh Province, South Vietnam. His awards include the Purple Heart, the National Defense Service Medal, the Vietnam Service Medal, the Vietnam Campaign Medal, and the Combat Infantryman Badge.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important piece of legislation to honor PFC Brent A. McClellan’s service and sacrifice for our county.
Introduced as HB952
