CW4 KOCH
LEGISLATION HAS PASSED
the House of Representatives that allows the Honeoye Falls Post Office, 39 West Main St., to be renamed in honor of Christian J. Koch, a Livingston County native, who was among three Army National Guardsmen who perished in a military helicopter training accident in the town of Mendon on Jan. 20, 2021. Congressman Chris Jacobs, R-Orchard Park, sponsored legislation, H.R. 3508, that would rename the post office the CW4 Christian J. Koch Memorial Post Office. CW4 Koch served for 20 years in the New York State Army National Guard. He earned numerous medals and awards for his service which included multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was also a civilian pilot with the New York State Police. Jacobs’ legislation now awaits passage in the Senate. In 2021 a portion of Route 64 in Mendon was renamed the Chief Warrant Officer 4 Christian J. Koch Memorial Highway. Koch died Jan. 20, 2021 when a UH-60 Blackhawk crashed into a Monroe County field during a nighttime training flight.
