BROCKPORT, NY (WIVB() - There is a move to rename the Brockport Post Office after a local hero.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Congresswoman Louise Slaughter are putting forth legislation to honor Staff Sgt. Nicholas Reid.
"Staff Sergeant Reid was a courageous hero who will be deeply missed," said Congresswoman Slaughter. "His job was to disarm enemy bombs so his fellow soldiers would be safe from explosions – the very definition of bravery and selflessness. Naming the Brockport Post Office after him will ensure that the memory of his courage and sacrifice lives on as an example for future generations."
Staff Sgt. Reid was a Brockport native who died at age 26 on December 13th. He was wounded in Afghanistan and died at a hospital in Germany.
