STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Six

A RESOLUTION designating a Purple Heart Trail spur to the New Hampshire state veterans cemetery and providing additional signs for the Purple Heart Trail.

Whereas, the state of New Hampshire has established the Purple Heart Trail as being, in part, U.S. Route 4 from the border in Lebanon to the intersection of Interstate Route 95, the Military Order of the Purple Heart of the USA desires to add a spur to this trail, being from the northerly intersection of U.S. Route 4 and U.S. Route 3 in Boscawen and running northerly along U.S. Route 3 to the New Hampshire state veterans cemetery, approximately 1.5 miles; and

Whereas, this cemetery is being actively used by our veterans; and

Whereas, a number of these veterans are holders of the Purple Heart medal, including casualties from Operation Iraqi Freedom; and

Whereas, a Purple Heart Memorial monument has been recently placed on the Memorial Walkway at the cemetery; and

Whereas, New Hampshire has established the New Hampshire Purple Heart Trail, in part, as being U.S. Route 4 from the border in Lebanon to the intersection of Interstate Route 95; and

Whereas, signs have been placed along said trail; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

That the portion of U.S. Route 3 from the intersection of U.S. Route 4 and U.S. Route 3 in Boscawen running northerly to the New Hampshire state veterans cemetery is hereby designated as a Purple Heart Trail spur; and

That the department of transportation shall place appropriate markers indicating the designation of this portion of U.S. Route 3 as the Purple Heart Trail spur; and

That the portion of the New Hampshire Purple Heart Trail being the length of New Hampshire U.S. Route 4 from the border in Lebanon to the intersection of Interstate Route 95 shall have appropriate signs placed along the full length of this trail; and

That the department of transportation shall place the additional markers indicating the designation of this route being the Purple Heart Trail.
