TAMPA, Fla. -- A Hillsborough County post office is being renamed for a fallen Air Force pilot.

The Town 'n' Country postal facility on Paula Drive will soon become the Major Andreas O'Keeffe Post Office Building.

USAF Major Andreas "Andy" O'Keeffe​​​​​, 37, was a graduate of Tampa Bay Tech High School and the University of South Florida.

In March, he was killed in a helicopter crash in Iraq. It was his third deployment there.

Earlier this year, the U.S. House passed a bill to rename the site. The Senate followed suit last week. It now heads to the president's desk for a signature.
