Post Office Dedicated to Fallen Soldier

     CORNING (WENY) --  A Corning post office could soon carry the name of a fallen army specialist from the Southern Tier.  The post office at 198 Baker Street could be named the "Specialist Ryan P. Jayne Post Office Building".

     Specialist Jayne was born in Elmira before he moved to the Corning area.  He was killed in Afghanistatn two years ago after his car was hit by an make-shift bomb.

     Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Congressman Tom Reed are working together to get the legislation passed.
