BRISTOL, R.I. (AP) — A date has been set to name a U.S. Post Office in Bristol after an Army Green Beret who was killed in Afghanistan.

The U.S. Postal Service says a ceremony will be held Sunday, Sept. 16 to name the post office in honor of 1st Sgt. P. Andrew McKenna.

The vice chief of staff of the Army, Rhode Island's congressional delegation and governor and other military and postal service officials plan to attend.

The 35-year-old Bristol native died during an attack in Kabul in 2015.

McKenna, a 17-year Army veteran, also served in Iraq. He was awarded the Bronze Star with V device for heroism in combat.

The congressional delegation introduced legislation to rename the post office as "an enduring tribute to a young man who gave so much for his country and community."
