HORNELL, N.Y. -- Lance Corporal Zachary Smith, 19, was killed two weekends ago while serving as a marine in Afghanistan. He was a 2008 graduate of Hornell High School. Massa says it would be a lasting tribute to the young man.
"I have been in contact with the family and sought their permission and they have granted us the opportunity to name at the federal level the post office in Hornell after Lance Corporal Zach Smith and it's going to be an incredibly emotional honor to do so," he said.
A funeral service was held for the fallen hero this past week at St. Ann's church in Hornell.
