Subject: Co-Sponsorship of Legislation – Airman Michael L. Menser Memorial Bridge
In the near future, I plan on introducing legislation designating a bridge to honor Airman Michael L. Menser.

The bill will designate the bridge on a portion of State Route 2004 carrying Broadway Street over the Casselman River in Somerset County as the Airman Michael L. Menser Memorial Bridge.

A native of Boynton, Airman Menser served on the USS Forrestal as a U.S. Naval Reservist.

On July 29, 1967, the USS Forrestal suffered a catastrophic fire during flight operations while on Yankee Station off the coast of Vietnam. During the fire on the USS Forrestal, Airman Menser fought the fire and aided in controlling the damage. Airman Menser was awarded the Navy Commendation Medal for his exemplary service and bravery aboard the USS Forrestal.

Please join me in sponsoring this important piece of legislation.

Thank you for your consideration

Introduced as HB2117
