[Introduced April 3, 2009]


Requesting the Division of Highways place commemorative signs at mile marker 65.5 of the north and south bound lanes of Interstate 64/Interstate 77 near Mahan in Fayette County and on Route 19 one mile north of its intersection with Route 61 near Oak Hill in Fayette County indicating that the motorist is crossing the 38th parallel north in honor of the veterans of the Korean War and particularly in memory of the thousands who died in the pursuit of freedom for all mankind.

Whereas, The 38th parallel north is a circle of latitude that is 38 degrees north of the earth's equatorial plane; and
Whereas, The 38th parallel north has been especially important in recent history as the dividing line between the countries of North and South Korea; and
Whereas, The military struggle fought on the Korean Peninsula began in 1950 with the invasion of North Korea crossing the 38th parallel into South Korea; and
Whereas, The 38th parallel was the place where the cease-fire was called that effectively ended the Korean War in July, 1953, after more than three years of conflict; and
Whereas, As a fitting tribute to those who fought against communist aggression in Korea, and especially the thousands who were killed, a sign designating that the motorist is crossing the 38th parallel north should be erected on Interstate 64/Interstate 77 at mile marker 65.5 near Mahan in Fayette County and on Route 19 one mile north of its intersection with Route 61 near Oak Hill in Fayette County; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Legislature hereby requests the West Virginia Division of Highways erect a sign at mile marker 65.5 of the north and south bound lanes of Interstate 64/Interstate 77 near Mahan in Fayette County and on Route 19 one mile north of its intersection with Route 61 near Oak Hill in Fayette County designating that the motorist is crossing the 38th parallel north in honor of the veterans of the Korean War and particularly in memory of the thousands who died in the pursuit of freedom for all mankind; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Clerk of the House of Delegates forward a copy of this resolution to the Secretary of the Department of Transportation, the Commissioner of the Division of Highways, the Korean War Veterans Mountaineer Chapter and the Korean War Veterans Association of West Virginia.
