WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Senate passed Congresswoman Lisa McClain’s (R-MI) bill on Wednesday to rename the St. Clair Post Office after Marine Corporal Jeffrey Robert Standfest.
“Cpl. Standfest was an American hero who was taken from us far too soon,” said Rep. McClain. “I’m glad the Senate passed my legislation to rename the St. Clair Post Office after Cpl. Standfest right before Memorial Day. He paid the ultimate sacrifice and deserves to be honored by his community.”
Marine Corporal Jeffrey Robert Standfest was a 2005 graduate of St. Clair High School. While serving in Afghanistan, he gave the ultimate sacrifice when an improvised explosive device struck and killed him. He was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart for his great sacrifice for our country.
