Jerry L. Hedrick, longtime veteran activist and national executive committee member for the American Legion, said he came up with the idea when he was decorating the gravesites of fallen soldiers for last year's Memorial Day celebration.

"I got to thinking that we have over 800 veterans in that cemetery, and I wanted to do something to give them the recognition they deserve," Hedrick said. "I brought up the subject at the local American Legion meeting and had 100 percent support, then I threw the idea out at the AMVETS meeting, and they were for it, too. So I went to the veterans council and asked them what they thought, and they were behind it, too."
Hedrick said he didn't realize how much it took to change a street name. He began by recruiting several residents who live on Salem Street to gauge how people would react to the proposal.
"You have to be careful when you start looking at changing a street name," Hedrick said.
...
Hedrick said the veterans council is in the process of gathering signatures from residents and hopes to petition the Lexington Board of Adjustment and Planning Board in August. He said the group will take a hiatus over the next two months to attend several statewide and national veterans group meetings.
Hedrick said he believes veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice should not be forgotten, and this is a small effort to remind the citizens of how much the nation owes to those men who fought for their country.
"If it wasn't for these servicemen, we wouldn't have the freedoms we have today," Hedrick said.

"We don't know if Salem Street was necessarily named for anything particular, but in lieu of all the recent celebrations for D-Day and Memorial Day, it seems like a worthy cause."Hedrick said the veterans council is in the process of gathering signatures from residents and hopes to petition the Lexington Board of Adjustment and Planning Board in August.

Hedrick was drafted into the Army at the age of 19 and served in an armored cavalry regiment between 1966 and 1968.
"I care deeply for wounded veterans, who were not as fortunate as I was to return home unharmed," Hedrick said.
