N.J. Post Office Renamed for Fallen Marine


A northern New Jersey town is renaming its post office in honor of a fallen Marine who grew up in the community.

Postal officials and political leaders will attend an 11 a.m. ceremony Saturday to rename the Westwood Post Office for Marine Sgt. Christopher R. Hrbek.

Hrbek was killed in Afghanistan in January by an improvised explosive device.

The 25-year-old graduate of Westwood High School previously served three tours of duty in Iraq.

Among those scheduled to attend the ceremony are U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg and U.S. Rep. Scott Garrett, who sponsored the legislation to honor Hrbek. President Obama signed it in June.
