WHEREAS, Many residents of the County of Alpine, including many Washoe Tribal members and other community members, served in the United States military during the Vietnam war with the support of friends, family, and loves ones; and
WHEREAS, The naming of this section of State Route 88 will recognize the contributions and sacrifices of these veterans, their friends, families, and loved ones; and
WHEREAS, This action will help upgrade the Vietnam war from being classified as the “Forgotten War”; and
