State Rep. Jack Cera (D-Bellaire) today announced the Ohio House unanimously passed Senate Bill 134, which includes Cera’s proposal to name a portion of State Route 7 as the Ohio Valley Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway.


“Over 3,000 Ohioans lost their lives during the Vietnam war, including many from the Ohio Valley.” said Cera. “This bill will help to honor those who died, and serve as a reminder of the sacrifices made by Ohio Valley veterans, their families and the region as a whole to defend the freedoms we all too often take for granted.”


The designated highway would stretch from the southern boundary of Martins Ferry to the northern boundary of Bellaire.


“This visible reminder is a special tribute to those who served, sacrificed and gave their lives for their country,” said Terry Wildman, a combat Vietnam veteran who served in the Marines and testified on the proposal while it was in committee.


The bill will now be sent to Governor Kasich’s desk to be signed into law.
