I want to say a great big thank you to the Honorable Mayor of the City of Pleasant Valley, Barbara Metcalfe, and to Delegate Mike Caputo and Delegate  Linda Longstreth and all that helped in the dedication ceremony of the Veterans Bridge at Kingmont dedicated to the memory of Pvt. Jarret L. Springer, U.S. Army KIA World War11 and Pfc. Benjamin Benny Hamrick USMC KIA in Vietnam.

The dedication on Wednesday, May 29 was just awesome. Most people that know me, know that I'm the one that went to war with Benny and this has meant so much to me and for all the hard work that was done to make this happen.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am happy for the Springer Family and the Hamrick Family. Now Jarret and Benny will be remembered forever for their sacrifice.

This is so appreciated by the many that have been wanting this for so long and it's a job well done.

Philip L. Hickman
