West Virginia route 10 over Madison Branch and County Route 10/17 the US army Sgt Bernard C.Maynard Memorial Bridge.

We the family want to know why our loved one was over looked and another name was placed on the bridge? The state of West Virginia has breech a contact between the desendents of Bernard C Maynard SR we want answers and the bridge that was promised to our father and grandfather placed where it should be.
Breech of contact from the state of West Virginia its a bidding contract that the state made in the Legislation. If this is not fixed the decsendents of Mr Maynard will and are prosueing a law suite againist the state of WestVirgina for breech of contract.
IF the state will disguard its on our Legislation and bills they pass how are We the POEPLE suppose to trust this state and the people working for it.
