Jay' Hall Memorial Highway". The designated section is identifies as that portion of state route 77 from the southerly bounds of the Pembroke Town park northerly to the intersection of Indian Falls Road in the Town of Pembroke.

On October 7, 1969, he was on a reconnaissance patrol in an area of known enemy activity. He and his group were suddenly subjected to an intense attack from enemy forces. With complete disregard for his personal safety, Specialist Hall exposed himself to hostile fire while his comrades were able to obtain cover. During this action, he was mortally wounded. Specialist Hall earned the NYS Conspicuous Service Cross, the National Defense Service Medal, the Vietnam Service Medal with One Bronze Star, Vietnam Campaign Ribbon, Combat Infantryman Badge and the Silver Star, which is the nation's third highest award for valor. The Veteran's Outreach Club and the Government classes of the Pembroke Jr. /Sr. High School have requested that this legislation be introduced to honor this brave veteran from the Town of Pembroke who made the ultimate sacrifice for his country. The bill is also supported by the Genesee County Legislature, the Pembroke Central School District, the Village of Corfu Board of Trustees and the Pembroke Teacher's Federation.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
