WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi welcomed today’s unanimous passage of his bill, H.R.1844, to rename the Elgin Post office in honor of Corporal Alex Martinez, an Elgin native and the only individual from the city to lose their life in combat since the terror attack on September 11, 2001.
