Subject: Resolution Identifying Portion of County Line Road as the SP4 Harold E. Cahsman Memorial Highway
"The valor and courage of our young women and men in the armed services are a shining example to all of the world, and we owe them and their families our deepest respect."

. . . . Bill Frist

Dear Colleagues,

I will soon be introducing legislation that honors a man from my district and hometown who gave his life in service to our nation in the Vietnam War. SP4 Harold Edward Cashman of Hatboro, died on January 31st, 1968 in Quang Tri Province, South Vietnam. This was the first day of the infamous Tet Offensive throughout South Vietnam.

Ed Cashman was attending Delaware Valley College in Doylestown full-time when he received his draft notice in 1967. Instead of requesting a student deferment to which he was entitled, he reported for his conscription into the U.S. Army. After completion of his Basic Training, Ed Cashman was assigned to the elite 1ST Cavalry Division and deployed to South Vietnam in August of 1967.

I am proposing that County Line Road, between Warminster and Jacksonville Roads be named SP4 Harold E. Cashman Memorial Highway. Please consider cosponsoring this legislation which honors one of Pennsylvania's heroes.
