Legislation was signed into law this week by President Obama that honors Master Sgt. Daniel Fedder.

Master Sgt. Daniel Fedder was killed by the blast of an improvised explosive device Aug. 27, 2010 while supporting combat operations in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. Under the legislation signed Tuesday, the post office in Pine City will be renamed the “Master Sergeant Daniel L. Fedder Post Office.”

Master Sgt. Fedder, who was 34 years old at the time of his death, was a 16-year veteran of the Marine Corps., with completed combat deployments to Iraq in 2004 and 2006, and an overseas deployment with the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit in 2007.

Master Sgt. Fedder grew up in Pine City, MN, and he is survived by his parents, Robert and Jackie McKellar, who still reside in the area. He is further survived by his wife Diana who lives in California with their two young children.

The legislation was introduced by Rep. Chip Cravaack and co-sponsored by every member of Minnesota’s Congressional delegation.
