Subject: Bridge Naming - SP4 James Wise, Jr and PFC James Wingert, USMC Memorial Bridge
I am seeking your support for legislation that will designate a bridge on that portion of State Route 2003 over Mahoning Creek in Big Run Borough, Jefferson County, as the SP4 James Wise, Jr and PFC James Wingert, USMC Memorial Bridge.

SP4 James Wise, Jr and PFC James Wingert, USMC grew up together as next door neighbors in Big Run, Jefferson County. They gave their lives in service to their country during the Vietnam War.

James Wise, Jr served with the US Army and James Wingert served with the US Marine Corps. On February 6, 1968, SP4 Wise was killed in action in Kontum, South Vietnam. On August 23, 1969, PFC Wingert was killed in action in Quang Nam, South Vietnam.

Please join me in honoring and remembering these young men.
