            Delegates Tomblin, R. Phillips and Marcum offered the following resolution, which was read by its title and referred to the Committee on Rules:

            H. C. R. 4 - “Requesting that bridge number 23-5-4.91 on Route 5 in Logan County, West Virginia, the ‘Army Corporal Eldred Jennings Hensley Memorial Bridge’.”

            Whereas, Corporal Hensley was born in 1930 in Logan County; and

            Whereas, Corporal Hensley enlisted in the United States Army on November 4, 1948; and

            Whereas, Corporal Hensley was a member of Task Force Smith, Charlie Company, which contained the first U.S. elements to engage the North Korean Army after arriving on the peninsula from Japan. On July 5, 1950 the force was in its position just north of Osan blocking the north-south road running from Suwon to Taejon. One platoon from Bravo Company occupied a hilltop just west of the road and the other two platoons established positions east of the road. Immediately to their east Charlie Company, including Corporal Hensley, set up defensive positions that covered Bravo Company’s flank and a railroad line running parallel to the road. This road was a major avenue of advance for the North Korean Army. The Task Force Smith occupied a mile-long line that included the shallow saddle formed by the two knolls held by the rifle companies. Where the road passed through this saddle and began to wind down to the valley floor, Task Force Smith made its initial stand. Despite the rain that morning the infantrymen detected a column of eight North Korean tanks moving south along the road from Suwon. The anti-tank weapons employed by the infantry were ineffective and soon more than thirty enemy tanks had passed through friendly lines, and were in the rear of the Task Force. By mid-day, North Korean infantry were overwhelming the last pockets of resistance taking many prisoners. That afternoon, in order to prevent its complete annihilation, the Task Force was ordered to withdraw to the south. The Task Force suffered its heaviest casualties during this withdrawal. The 1st Battalion of the 21st Infantry lost one hundred fifty-three men in the first twenty-four hours of fighting, including Corporal Hensley, by then a POW; and

            Whereas, Corporal Hensley made his way north by stages to Seoul and Pyongyang, and was then taken by train to Manpo on the south bank of the Yalu River in a mixed group of seven hundred fifty POWs and civilian internees. Exhaustion and malnutrition had begun to weaken the men and claim lives, and pneumonia became a constant menace. After several days at Manpo, the POWs were marched away to nearby villages to keep them from seeing Chinese troops marching into North Korea. They returned to Manpo in the last days of October 1950, and on October 3l began a long march to the so-called Apex Camps farther northeast. Companions recall that Corporal Hensley was mortally ill. On or about November 5, 1950, as the group was making its way over a mountain pass, Corporal Hensley fell along the wayside. Unable to continue, and possibly unconscious, he was reportedly shot by a North Korean guard as the group was forced to go on; and

            Whereas, The fate of Corporal Hensley, as well as many other soldiers, may have remained unknown had it not been for the actions Private First Class Wayne “Johnnie” Johnson who was captured by the North Korean Army in July 1950. During his time as a POW he clandestinely recorded the deaths of those around him. At the war’s end he smuggled his notes out in a toothpaste tube and was eventually awarded the Silver Star; and

            Whereas, It is fitting that an enduring memorial be established to commemorate this native son who gave the ultimate sacrifice for his state and his country; therefore, be it

            Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

            That the Division of Highways is hereby requested to name bridge number 23-5-4.91 on Route 5 in Logan County, West Virginia, the “Army Corporal Eldred Jennings Hensley Memorial Bridge”; and, be it

            Further Resolved, That the Commissioner of the Division of Highways is hereby requested to erect signs at both ends of the bridge containing bold and prominent letters proclaiming the bridge the “Army Corporal Eldred Jennings Hensley Memorial Bridge”; and, be it

            Further Resolved, That the Clerk of the House of Delegates forward a certified copy of this resolution to the Commissioner of the Division of Highways, his sister, Goldie Boyd, his nephew, Donald L. Tomblin, and Wayne “Johnnie” Johnson.

            Delegates R. Phillips, Tomblin and Marcum offered the following resolution, which was read by its title and referred to the Committee on Rules:

            Delegates R. Phillips, Tomblin and Marcum offered the following resolution, which was read by its title and referred to the Committee on Rules:

            H. C. R. 7 - “Requesting the Division of Highways to name a section of County Route 16, known as the Buffalo Creek Road, running through the unincorporated community of Lorado, Logan County, West Virginia, from the Lorado highway marker on the eastern edge of the community to the Lorado highway marker on the western edge of the community, the ‘Kerry Albright Road’.”

            Whereas, On February 26, 1972, a coal slurry impoundment dam owned by the Pittston Coal Company burst during heavy rains and collapsed two other impoundment dams, sending 132 million gallons of black waste water and sludge rushing in a 20 feet wave through the narrow Buffalo Creek valley; and

            Whereas, In a matter of minutes, 125 people were dead, 1100 injured, and over 4000 left homeless; 502 houses and 44 mobile homes were destroyed, and 943 houses and mobile homes damaged; 1000 cars and trucks were destroyed and total property damage was estimated at $50 million; and

            Whereas, In the midst of this devastation, a nine month old baby lay face down in the black muck, with only a tiny leg protruding above the surface; and

            Whereas, Some thirty minutes before, the baby’s mother, Sylvia Albright, and older brother, Steven Albright, had been desperately running from the wall of waste water hurtling towards them when Sylvia tried to throw her baby to higher ground just as the flood waters overtook them; and

            Whereas, Sadly, Sylvia Albright and Steven Albright perished in the flood that day, and the baby was last seen floating in the swirling waters; and

            Whereas, As residents later combed the valley for survivors, the baby’s seemingly lifeless body was found buried in the muck with severe bruises and injuries that rendered him nearly unrecognizable; and

            Whereas, The baby gasped for air when the thick mud was cleared from his mouth, and his rescuers realized that the baby had miraculously survived the flood and his subsequent submersion in the muck for at least twenty to thirty minutes; and

            Whereas, As the baby clung to life, he was taken to the hospital where doctors treated his injuries, but held out little hope for his survival; and

            Whereas, With the loving care of his father, Robert Albright, who stayed at his side day and night, the baby defied all odds and miraculously recovered; and

            Whereas, That baby, Kerry Lee Albright, henceforth became known as the “Miracle Baby of the Buffalo Creek Flood”; and

            Whereas, Robert Albright was working in an area coal mine when the flood took the life of his wife and elder son and destroyed his home, but he never returned after that fateful day; and

            Whereas, Kerry’s survival gave Robert a purpose in life and helped him to cope with the devastating losses he had suffered, and Robert devoted himself to nurturing the fragile young life who had been spared from the flood; and

            Whereas, Robert Albright had black lung from twenty-five years underground in the mines, and he now took a disability retirement to assume the full-time role of single father and caregiver to his baby son - learning to cook, clean and sew, to bathe little Kerry and to rock him to sleep; and

            Whereas, Robert and Kerry lived several years in a trailer provided by the federal government to flood victims until Robert was able to rebuild on the site of their former home; and

            Whereas, As Kerry grew up, Robert was determined to provide a better life for his son and encouraged him to follow his dreams, often telling Kerry “you can do whatever you want to do and be whatever you want to be”; and

            Whereas, When Kerry showed an interest and talent for performing, Robert arranged for private dance and voice lessons for him; and

            Whereas, When Kerry graduated from high school, he attended Marshall University as a theater major, and then began a twenty year career in musical theater that has taken him around the world performing as a singer and dancer; and

            Whereas, In the years after he moved away, Kerry often returned home to visit his father who had nurtured him and encouraged him to pursue his dreams; and

            Whereas, When Robert Albright died in 2000 of lung cancer and black lung, Kerry’s final words to his devoted father were, “I love you”; and

            Whereas, Kerry currently resides in Brooklyn, New York, where he appreciates his life, and lives with a positive and upbeat presence about him that reflects his many years performing in musical theater; and

            Whereas, The January 2013 edition of Reader’s Digest featured an article about Kerry’s miraculous story of survival, and now millions of readers are learning about the “Miracle Baby of the Buffalo Creek Flood” for the first time; and

            Whereas, It is only fitting that a section of Buffalo Creek Road be named for Kerry Albright to celebrate the miracle of life that he represents, and that by honoring Kerry, we also honor his father, Robert Albright, who lovingly nurtured his “miracle baby” into the adult that Kerry has become; therefore, be it

            Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

            That the Division of Highways is requested to name a section of County Route 16, known as the Buffalo Creek Road, running through the unincorporated community of Lorado, Logan County, West Virginia, from the Lorado highway marker on the eastern edge of the community to the Lorado highway marker on the western edge of the community, the “Kerry Albright Road”; and, be it
