A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE BRIDGE LOCATED ON HIGHWAY 391 IN SALUDA COUNTY OVER THE LITTLE SALUDA RIVER AT MILE MARKER 9.30 "CORPORAL DALE HALLMAN MEMORIAL BRIDGE" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THE DESIGNATION.

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly were deeply saddened to learn of the untimely and tragic death of Corporal Dale Hallman on April 6, 2018, at the age of twenty-nine and wish to honor and remember his supreme sacrifice in the line of duty; and

Whereas, Corporal Hallman, who was a member of the Bloodhound Tracking Team, was called to the scene of a crime in order to pursue a suspect. He began responding to the scene with lights and sirens activated but crashed at a location on Pencreek Road. He later died of his injuries; and

Whereas, a deputy of high character, Corporal Hallman had been with the Saluda County Sheriff's Office for five years, and he loved what he did. A close friend to his fellow officers and a hard worker, he will be remembered as an extraordinary deputy. He also served as a lieutenant with the county's fire service; and

Whereas, in 2016, Corporal Hallman was awarded the Medal of Valor for his outstanding service to Saluda County; and

Whereas, Corporal Hallman had recently gotten married and also had a baby on the way. He leaves behind his wife, unborn child, and two beloved stepsons. In addition, he is survived by his mother, father, and sister; and

Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to pay tribute to the life, service, and courageous sacrifice of this son of South Carolina by naming a bridge in Saluda County in his honor. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:

That the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, request that the Department of Transportation name the bridge located on Highway 391 in Saluda County over the Little Saluda River at mile marker 9.30 "Corporal Dale Hallman Memorial Bridge" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this location containing the designation.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation and the family of Corporal Dale Hallman.
