Press Release

Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today announced the House passed his bill to name a Sugar Land Post Office after fallen Marine Lance Corporal Garrett Gamble of the 22nd Congressional District of Texas. Gamble was killed on March 11, 2010 while patrolling during combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan. He was a 2008 graduate of Stephen F. Austin High in Sugar Land.

“America can never repay the debt that we owe Garrett Gamble and his family, but we can say thank you for his selfless commitment to serve our nation,” Rep. Pete Olson said. “When residents come to the Post Office in Sugar Land, they will see his name and remember his sacrifice in defense of our nation. This small gesture is one way we can say thank you to Garret’s family for raising such a strong, wonderful Marine. Garrett Gamble is a true hero and a grateful nation says thank you. I’m thrilled the House has acted to make this a reality and remain confident the Senate will do so as well.”

The Olson bill, H.R. 4877 would rename the US Post Office located at 3130 Grants Lake Boulevard in Sugar Land, Texas, as the "LCpl Garrett W. Gamble, USMC Post Office Building."  Every member of the Texas congressional delegation has cosponsored this bill.
