A Post Office in Honor of CIA Officer Gregg Wenzel

07.24.12 | 1 min read | Text by Steven Aftergood

The House of Representatives roused itself yesterday to name a post office in upstate New York after CIA officer Gregg Wenzel, who died in a car accident in Ethiopia in 2003 while under cover.

“When a man has given his life, as Gregg David Wenzel did, to protect our American liberties, honoring him through the tradition of naming a post office for his extraordinary service to our country is both fitting and inspiring,” said Rep. Nan Hayworth (R-NY).

Henceforward (or upon enactment), “The facility of the United States Postal Service located at 787 State Route 17M in Monroe, New York, shall be known and designated as the ‘National Clandestine Service of the Central Intelligence Agency NCS Officer Gregg David Wenzel Memorial Post Office’.”
