Washington, D.C., March 3, 2016 – Yesterday the U.S. House of Representatives passed Congressman Darrell Issa’s (R-CA) bill to rename the Camp Pendleton Post Office to honor members of units from Camp Pendleton who have received the Medal of Honor.
Congressman Issa released the following statement:
“The bravery and heroism displayed by our nation’s Medal of Honor recipients is second to none. These men and women have given so much – some even paying the ultimate sacrifice – in order to defend our freedom. It is my hope that this renaming will serve as a living reminder for all those who visit of the incredible bravery and selflessness of our servicemen and servicewomen. We remain forever indebted to these brave individuals, and their families, for their service and sacrifice for our great nation.”
If cleared by the Senate and signed into law, H.R. 136 would designate the main post office at the base to the “Camp Pendleton Medal of Honor Post Office” and will specifically recognize service members with strong ties to Camp Pendleton who have received the Congressional Medal of Honor – the nation’s highest award for valor and heroism.
