ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- President Obama has signed legislation naming a Baldwinsville Post Office after a fallen Marine.
The law designates the facility on East Genesee Street in Baldwinsville as the "Corporal Kyle Schneider Post Office Building."
The 23-year-old was killed in action by a roadside bomb while on combat patrol in Afghanistan last June. He had previously been knocked unconscious by another roadside bomb just a month earlier.
Schneider grew up in the Town of Lysander and graduated in 2006 from C.W. Baker High School.
His parents say they're thankful and appreciative of the local tribute.
