18
19   Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly,
20   on behalf of all South Carolinians, acknowledge with deep
21   appreciation the great sacrifice that the men and women of the
22   United States Armed Forces make for the ideals of freedom and
23   justice, which are so richly enjoyed in this nation; and
24
25   Whereas, Sergeant Lashawn D. Evans of the United States Army
26   stands high among those servicemen and women so honored by
27   their country; and

30   assigned to the 1st Attack Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Aviation
31   Regiment, Combat Aviation Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, Fort
32   Riley, Kansas. Answering the call of his country, he left his family
33   and home to serve abroad as a part of the war on terror; and
34
35   Whereas, on February 15, 2011, at the age of twenty-four,

41   Evans; his daughter, Shanrea; his mother, Kim Inez Evans; his
42   grandmother, Dorothy Evans; and his father, Kevin Green; and

 3   can make than to lay down his life for a noble cause, as Sergeant
 4   Lashawn D. Evans has done, and to honor his valor, Sergeant
 5   Evans has been named a recipient of the Palmetto Patriot Award,
 6   given by former Lieutenant Governor André Bauer; and
 7
 8   Whereas, the South Carolina General Assembly counts it a great
 9   privilege to remember Sergeant Lashawn D. Evans, and the
10   members with one voice offer their grateful thanks to Almighty
11   God for the service and ultimate sacrifice of this heroic son of
12   liberty. Now, therefore,
