Anited States Senate WASHINGTON, DC 20510 December 3, 2018 ‘The Honorable Ron Johnson ‘The Honorable Claire MeCaskill Chairman Ranking Member Senate Committee on Homeland Security Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs and Government Affairs 340 Dirksen Senate Office Building 442 Hart Senate Office Building Washington, DC 20510 Washington, DC 20510 Dear Chairman Johnson and Ranking Member McCaskill: We write in support of H.R. 3184, a bill to designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 180 McCormick Road in Charlottesville, Virginia, as the “Captain Humayun Khan Post Office”. U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan was born on September 9, 1976, and died on June 8, 2004, while in service to his country during Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was killed by an improvised explosive device outside of his base in Baqubah, Iraq. His efforts that morning saved the lives of more than a hundred soldiers. Captain Khan was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart and was buried with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. Naming this post office after Captain Khan would honor his memory and service to his nation. We are proud to offer our support for this bill, and appreciate your consideration of this legislation. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Russel Wade at Russel_Wade@kaine.senate.gov or Lauren Marshall at Lauren_ Marshall @wamer senate.gov. Sincerely, Mk. © Money Fae Jo, Mark R. Wamer Tim Kaine United States Senator United States Senator
