Highway Memorials to Honor Military Heroes, Including Marietta's Allen Nolan
Posted on: 02/19/2014

State Representative Andy Thompson (R-Marietta) is applauding the Ohio House of Representatives’ vote of concurrence on House Bill 19 with some Senate changes.   The legislation formally designates sections of memorial highways in honor of eleven  hometown heroes.  
 
Thompson – who sponsored House Bill 19 – says Ohioans who lost their lives in service to the nation deserve to be honored within their communities and to have their sacrifices remembered. He says having a highway named in their honor will hopefully be a reminder to families and friends who their lost loved one is greatly missed and appreciated.  
 
Thompson introduced House Bill 19 back in January of 2013 to honor U.S. Army Specialist Allen Nolan of Marietta, who lost his life after being injured by an improvised explosive device in Iraq in 2004. A section of the bill officially designates a portion of State Route 676 in memory of Nolan. The signage was actually placed last year during a solemn ceremony.      

House Bill 19 will now go to Governor Kasich to be signed.
