A bill that would name the Laceyville Post Office in honor of Melinda “Mindy” Gene Piccotti was unanimously passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, according to U.S. Rep. Fred Keller.

Keller noted that this piece of legislation is his first to pass the full House.

The measure, H.R. 4279, now goes to the Senate.

“To the many veterans she helped, their families and loved ones, and the people of Laceyville, Mindy Piccotti is nothing short of a hero,” said Keller. “I am proud that the House of Representatives unanimously recognized that her achievements are worthy of this great honor.”

Piccotti left an indelible mark on the Laceyville community and on those veterans whose lives “have been dramatically improved by the caring and outreach of Mindy and the

Hunts for Healing program,” Keller said.

“As this bill advances, I am looking forward to working with my colleagues in the Senate and in the Laceyville area to finally get Mindy the recognition her work deserves,” he added.

Piccotti was an Air Force veteran and the founder of the Hunts for Healing organization.

Hunts for Healing helps soldiers wounded in combat and other combat veterans transition back into civilian life by allowing them to experience the joys of hunting.
