Jun 13 2016
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) today released the following statement after President Obama signed into law the Iowa delegation’s legislation to name a Cedar Rapids post office after Sergeant First Class (SFC) Terryl L. Pasker, an Iowa National Guardsman who was killed in action in Afghanistan. The Iowa Congressional delegation, led by Senator Ernst in the Senate, and Representative Blum (R-IA) in the House, introduced this legislation in March.
“Sergeant First Class Pasker made the ultimate sacrifice for our state and our country in defense of our freedoms,” said Senator Ernst. “While we can never thank him and his family enough for his service, I am proud that our community will be able to recognize his heroism with this tribute to him. I am grateful that the president signed this legislation into law, as well as to my Iowa colleagues – especially Congressman Blum – for their work to ensure Sergeant First Class Pasker and his family receives the recognition he deserves.”
