Schumer: Senate has Approved Name Change for Rochester Post Office

Rochester, NY -- Senator Charles Schumer says his bill renaming the Rochester Main Post Office after Army Specialist Theodore Matthew Glende has passed the Senate.

Glende was a Rochester native and was killed in Afghanistan in July 2012 while assisting wounded fellow soldiers during combat.

Schumer earlier this year secured from the Army a posthumous promotion for Glende. The legislation now heads to the House of Representatives for final passage.
