COLUMBUS—House Bill 276 unanimously passed the Ohio House and Senate this week, announced State Representative Susan Manchester (R-Waynesfield). The bill designates the Sergeant First Class Charles Gregory Huston Memorial Highway, as well as other memorial highways and bridges across the state.

“Sergeant First Class Greg Huston was among nearly 600 Americans who disappeared in Laos. His family, like many throughout our country, has been deprived of closure,” Rep. Manchester said. “Sergeant First Class Huston fought bravely for the United States and we are proud to honor him in this way.”
The SFC Charles Gregory Huston Memorial Highway was designated as the northbound and southbound lanes of state route number sixty-six between Houston road and Roeth road, in Shelby County.
