Ten years ago, D.C.’s Brentwood postal facility was contaminated with Anthrax, killing two postal workers. The facility, which underwent a major decontamination, was renamed in their honor.

The ceremonies will take place at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception at 9:30 a.m. and at 4 p.m.

The services will be hosted by former and current postal workers.
