Beaverton Post Office Renamed for Army Veteran, Beaverton Native

The Beaverton community joined in a celebration and dedication of their post office Monday.

It’s now the Colonel Alfred Asch Post Office building.

Alfred Asch was born in Beaverton in 1920.

In 1941 he joined the Army Air Corp as a B-24 bomber pilot.

Colonel Asch retired from the military in 1968.

In 2013 he published his memoir “The Whole Nine Yards”.

President Trump signed the bill to rename the post office building in December.

“To have this dedication and the post office named after him is kind of a crowning achievement.  I feel that this is a great statement for all the things he did in his life this is the culmination of it,” said David Asch, son of Alfred Asch.

Colonel Al Asch will be remembered for his significant contributions to this state and country.
