WASHINGTON D.C. (WTAQ) - President Barack Obama has signed a bill into law allowing for the De Pere post office to be renamed in honor of local soldier Cpl. Justin D. Ross.

Wisconsin Congressman Reid Ribble sponsored the bill, and says the name change is meant to honor all service members from his district who have lost their lives in combat since he took office in 2011.

“Freedom always comes at a cost and many have paid the highest price,” Ribble said in a news release. “These soldiers’ service and sacrifice is worthy of far more than any legislation can offer, but taking this moment and this step is one more way for a grateful nation to honor these heroes.”

Also during that time, Sgt. Paul Atim, Staff Sgt. Matthew Hermanson, Staff Sgt. Garrick Eppinger Jr. and Staff Sgt. Jordan Bear died in combat.
