Army Names Baghdad Post Office In Honor of Deceased Westbrook Soldier


The Army is naming a post office after a local
soldier killed in Iraq nearly five years ago. Sgt. Lawrence A. Roukey, a
33-year-old U.S. Postal Service employee and Army reservist, was killed in an
explosion outside a Baghdad warehouse April 26, 2004. On Friday, Army officials
will open a new post office at Forward Operating Base Prosperity in Baghdad that
will bear his name.
