Its always a nice idea/practice to remember those in the armed forces who have died and/or fought for the rights to freedoms that the rest of us enjoy. However, with that in mind, would it not be more appropriate to name the post office in memory of ALL veterans? But why change the name (is there a specific name anyway?) of the post office? There are a number of war memorials in town that already pay tribute to the fallen soldiers of the community. Just a thought...

And what about other deserving people, perhaps the unsung heroes of our personal lives and the community? This soldier was obviously "sung" with all the accolades, ribbons, awards, and so on. I agree with all of the writers above: Let's not. Thank you.

Anna Eshoo is spending her time on this and not trying to fix our federal deficit, including a bankrupt postal service - Unbelievable!
As a previous writer commented we have memorials to our fallen. I would prefer to see more emphasis placed on the true meaning of Memorial and Veterans day where people like Lt. Kenneth Ballard are properly honored.

This is exactly what's wrong with the country. Our representatives are busy coming up with stupid stuff like this while, as someone said, Rome is burning. Thanks for reporting this news item. It's insignificant yet speaks volumes about the lunacy we have to deal with. Those in power resort to distractions like this when they don't have any hope of doing anything better anymore.
