Delbert Stickler started this petition to West Virginia State Senate and

United States Marine Corps Corporal Guy Maywood Edwards was born on September 13, 1918, in Myra, West Virginia, to Hiram Otho Edwards and Elmyra Elizabeth Porter Edwards;

Corporal Edwards graduated from Hamlin High School, and enlisted in the Marines during the winter of 1942; 

Corporal Edwards was serving with the Fourth Division of the Marines and, despite having been wounded in October 1944 on Saipan in the Marina Islands, landed on Iwo Jima on February 20, 1945, ready for duty. Corporal Edwards was killed in action six days later on February 26, 1945; 

Corporal Edwards’ brother PFC Donald Edwards was also serving in the Fourth Marine Division on Iwo Jima and was wounded on February 28, 1945; 

It is right and just to honor the memory of United States Marine Corps Corporal Guy Maywood Edwards, who so ably served his country and state, and having made the ultimate sacrifice, by naming this bridge after him; 

Legislature of West Virginia
