A Sign to Honor


Cotton, Jennifer K., Warrior - Citizen


LAWTON, OkIa. -The division Soldiers, while on their way to duty at the new headquarters building here in April 2011, received a warm welcome as they drove past highway signs that read "95th Division Memorial Highway."

The southbound sign, located just north of State Highway 49, and the northbound sign, located just north of Lee Boulevard, span the section of Interstate 44 adjacent to Fort Sill.

The signs were named in honor of the division and were another project of the 95th Division Memorial Foundation. The Foundation, whose goal is to perpetuate the legacy of the division, had already successfully named portions of highway in Kansas as the Iron Men of Metz Highway, and now their efforts have arrived in Oklahoma.

The northbound sign was unveiled on April 14 by state Rep. Joe Dormán, (D-Rush Springs) and members of the Foundation, including Stephen Bodnar, a World War Il veteran and Purple Heart recipient who served in I Company, 377th Division.

The sign project started three years ago, when Michael Dean, a member of the Foundation and former 95th Division Soldier, approached his state legislators. Dormán, whose district includes Fort Sill, was willing to support the project.
