President Obama is expected to sign legislation that would rename an Oxford post office after the late 1st Lt. Donald C. Carwile, who was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2008.
The bill was written by Rep. Trent Kelly (R-Miss) as a way to honor Carwile’s service and preserve his memory.
“Army First Lieutenant Carwile is a hero. We will never forget his sacrifice to protect our freedoms in this great nation. It is important to honor notable Mississippians who are willing and proud to pay that price. Everyone who passes through the doors of the post office will be reminded of a soldier who loved his country,” said Kelly.
