A bill renaming Clermont’s post office for Zack Addington passed the House of Representatives on Wednesday. Addington, a lance corporal and rifleman in the U.S. Marine Corps, was killed in action during the Vietnam War. His sister, B.J. Ash, said he was a “blessing” to the family and “a joy every day we had him.” He was born in Gainesville.
