Wapato to Vote on Renaming Street After WWII Hero
Tonight, Wapato City Council members will be asked to vote on a proposal to rename one of two major streets in town.
The council is being asked by local veterans to rename either Dove Lane or Camas Avenue after local war hero Reinhardt J. Keppler.
Keppler served in the Navy during World War II, where he died at the Battle of Guadalcanal -- he was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously.
Keppler was also born in Washington, where he graduated from Wapato High School.
