Public Law 115-109
115th Congress

                                 An Act

   To designate a mountain in the John Muir Wilderness of the Sierra 
National Forest as ``Sky Point''. <<NOTE: Jan. 10, 2018 -  [H.R. 381]>> 

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled, <<NOTE: California. 16 
USC 1132 note. Sky Mote.>> 

    Congress finds the following:
            (1) Staff Sergeant Sky Mote, USMC, grew up in El Dorado, 
            (2) Staff Sergeant Mote graduated from Union Mine High 
            (3) Upon graduation, Staff Sergeant Mote promptly enlisted 
        in the Marine Corps.
            (4) Staff Sergeant Mote spent 9 years serving his country in 
        the United States Marine Corps, including a deployment to Iraq 
        and two deployments to Afghanistan.
            (5) By his decisive actions, heroic initiative, and resolute 
        dedication to duty, Staff Sergeant Mote gave his life to protect 
        fellow Marines on August 10, 2012, by gallantly rushing into 
        action during an attack by a rogue Afghan policeman inside the 
        base perimeter in Helmand province.
            (6) Staff Sergeant Mote was awarded the Navy Cross, a Purple 
        Heart, the Navy-Marine Corps Commendation Medal, a Navy-Marine 
        Corps Achievement Medal, two Combat Action Ribbons and three 
        Good Conduct Medals.
            (7) The Congress of the United States, in acknowledgment of 
        this debt that cannot be repaid, honors Staff Sergeant Mote for 
        his ultimate sacrifice and recognizes his service to his 
        country, faithfully executed to his last, full measure of 
            (8) A presently unnamed peak in the center of Humphrey Basin 
        holds special meaning to the friends and family of Sky Mote, as 
        their annual hunting trips set up camp beneath this point; under 
        the stars, the memories made beneath this rounded peak will be 
        cherished forever.

Sierra National Forest in California, located at 37 15'16.10091"N
