In a press release on Oct. 1, Rep. Michelle Steel (CA-48) introduced her bill to rename the post office at 9317 Bolsa Rd. in Little Saigon, Calif. to “General Tran Hung Dao Post Office.”

Honoring a hero: General Tran Hung Dao is considered one of the greatest military generals of all time. He still remains a significant figure to the Vietnamese community, according to Orange County Breeze.

  • The brilliant military strategist saved Vietnam from Mongolian invasion three times, which is considered one of the greatest military feats in history.
  • “I’m proud to represent Little Saigon, which is home to over 189,000 Vietnamese Americans – the largest Vietnamese population outside of Vietnam,” stated Rep. Steel. “This week, in honor of the anniversary of his death on October 3rd, I introduced a bill that would rename a U.S. Post Office in Little Saigon as the ‘General Tran Hung Dao Post Office.’”
  • “This renaming would mean so much to those in the Vietnamese community that I am so proud to represent,” she added.
