Ashford bill would rename an Omaha post office in honor of Navy SEAL killed in 2011 in Afghanistan
WASHINGTON — Rep. Brad Ashford, D-Neb., has introduced legislation to name an Omaha post office in honor of a Navy SEAL killed in Afghanistan in 2011.
Caleb Nelson, a 26-year-old Omaha native, was on a combat patrol in Afghanistan when his vehicle was struck by an improvised explosive device.
“We must never forget the ultimate sacrifice Caleb made protecting our country,” Ashford said in a press release.
