Subject: Major General Harold “Harry” Greene Memorial Bridge
In the near future I will be introducing legislation to designate a bridge over Interstate 81 in Middlesex Township, Cumberland County as the Major General Harold “Harry” Greene Memorial Bridge.

Major General Harold “Harry” Greene was born on February 11, 1959, in Boston, Massachusetts. In 2002, Major General Harold Greene graduated from the United States Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania with a Master of Strategic Studies degree. From 2002-2010, Major General Greene and his family called Carlisle home. In January of 2014, Major General Greene was named deputy commander of the Combined Security Transition Command in Afghanistan.

On August 5, 2014, Major General Greene was killed in an attack while visiting Camp Qargha’s Marshal Fahim National Defense University in Kabul. Major General Greene is the highest-ranking American officer to be killed on foreign soil since 1972 and he was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery on August 14, 2014. For his service to the United States, Major General Greene received the Army Distinguished Service Medal, Legion of Merit and Purple Heart.

I hope you will sponsor this legislation and join me in honoring this fallen hero.

Introduced as HB1967
