(Washington, DC) -- U.S. Senators from Minnesota are proposing legislation to rename three U.S. Post Offices in honor of fallen National Guard members.
Warrant Officer Candidate Kort Plantenberg, Chief Warrant Officer Charles Nord, and Chief Warrant Officer James Rogers died in a helicopter crash two years ago south of St. Cloud. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith introduced the legislation recently to rename the post offices in the guardsmen's hometowns of Avon, Perham, and Winstead.
Companion legislation has been introduced in the House by Congressman Tom Emmer and Congresswoman Michelle Fischbach.
