|Subject:||Co-Sponsorship of Legislation – Elk County Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge|
|At the request of the Elk County Commissioners, the Elk County Department of Veterans Affairs and the Borough of Ridgway, I will soon introduce legislation to honor Elk County's Vietnam Veterans.
The bill will designate the bridge on a portion of U.S. Route 219 over Elk Creek in Ridgway Borough as the Elk County Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge.
Elk County wishes to recognize the brave men and women who served in the Vietnam Conflict, and especially recognize the sacrifice made by the eight individuals from Elk County who lost their lives in Vietnam:
Jerome Edward Bowers, Jr., United States Army; Larry Wayne Gardner, United States Marine Corps; Michael Gigliotti, United States Army; John Paul Paropacic, United States Marine Corps; Jerome Robert Sain, United States Army; John Ellsworth Showers, Jr., United States Army; Robert Glenn Willow, United States Marine Corps; Paul Eugene Yonkie, United States Air Force.
Please join me in sponsoring this important piece of legislation.
Thank you for your consideration.
Introduced as HB1954
