State Representative Dan Newhouse introduced legislation that just passed The House of Representatives to commemorate the life and service of a young man from Tri-Cities who died serving his country just over a year ago on July 10, 2017.

This legislation would designate the U.S. Postal Service facility at 4801 West Van Giesen Street in West Richland, Washington as the “Sergeant Dietrich Schmieman Post Office Building.”
