The main post office in Galesburg may soon be named in honor of a local man who was killed in Iraq. Monday, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos introduced a bill that would call it the "Senior Airman Daniel Miller Post Office Building."

Miller grew up in Galesburg, and graduated from ROWVA High School in 2001. While serving with the Air Force, he died in 2007 in Iraq, while trying to defuse a car bomb - it exploded, killing him and two others.

Miller was 24 years old.
