KINGSTON – The main post office at 90 Cornell Street in Kingston is now known as the U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Robert H. Dietz Post Office. It was dedicated to his memory at a ceremony on Saturday.
Dietz, a Kingston native, was 24 when he was killed by enemy fire on March 29, 1945 while serving in Germany. He was a squad leader in the Army’s 38th Armored Infantry Battalion, 7th Armored Division.
He was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for braving enemy fire to dismantle explosives on a bridge, opening the way to get into Kirchain, Germany.
