HOUSTON – A southeast Houston post office is set to be renamed in honor of beloved US Army Specialist Vanessa Guillén.

The renaming was made possible after President Joe Biden signed a bill to rename the post office on Galveston Road after Guillén.

Guillén died at the Fort Hood Army base in Central Texas when she was murdered by another soldier in 2020.

“This local post office building will soon provide Houston area residents with another special way to remember our local hero SPC Vanessa Guillén in our everyday lives,” said Congresswoman Sylvia Garcia said back in 2022 when the bill went to President Biden’s desk. “Vanessa was a strong and ambitious young woman who was taken from her family and Houston much too soon. However, because of her, countless veterans and service members can live without fear. I hope this post office renaming brings some comfort to Vanessa’s family and loved ones.”
