On December 21, 2018, Public Law No: 115-382 designates the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 35 West Main St, Frisco, Colorado, as the "Patrick E. Mahany Jr. Post Office Building.”

Mahany and his Flight for Life crew crashed into a parking lot near St. Anthony’s Medical Center just seconds after takeoff.

Mahany was a 27-year veteran pilot for Flight for Life. He served his country as an Army pilot in Vietnam from April 1970 to April 1971, logging 1,200 combat hours while earning a Bronze Star and Purple Heart.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations
