serves as a small token of appreciation to all of our current and
former United States Armed Forces services members, from all eras,
including the fallen, the wounded, those unaccounted for and former
prisoners of war, in humble recognition of their service, sacrifice
and commitment to our Country and the defense of our freedoms.

This highway, linking the municipalities of Brighton, Henrietta, Rush,
Mendon, Lima, Livonia, Canadice and Springwater, is a symbolic
reminder of the cooperation and camaraderie felt by all American
service members, past and present, hailing from Western New York.
Resolutions in support of this legislation have been passed by the
towns of Brighton, Henrietta, Rush, Mendon, Lima, Livonia, Canadice,
and Springwater.
