WASHINGTON, DC – Today, November 17th, 2014, Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-49) released the following statement praising the House’s passage of H.R. 5468, a bill to name the Mainside post office aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, the Camp Pendleton Medal of Honor Post Office. The post office is located at 1103 USPS Building 1103, Camp Pendleton, California, 92055. The Medal of Honor is our nation’s highest award for valor and heroism, often only given after the death of the serviceman or woman due to the extreme acts of heroism and selflessness. The post office will be named to specifically recognize those of the US Marine Corp and Navy Corpsman who have received the Congressional Medal of Honor and have close ties to Camp Pendleton. Congressman Issa released the following statement:
“Medal of Honor recipients are some of the bravest, most selfless individuals in the history of our great nation,” said Congressman Issa. “Their stories of valor are enduring and worthy of remembrance by every citizen in our country. This naming will be a permanent reminder of the heroism from our servicemen and servicewomen, who put others and their country first. To all of the Marines and Navy Corpsman with ties to Camp Pendleton we are grateful for your bravery and service.”
The House passed H.R. 5468 by a voice vote.
