NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP) - The Delaware National Guard is unveiling new signs naming its headquarters after former state attorney general and National Guard Major Beau Biden.

The Guard said in a news release that the New Castle headquarters will be called the Major Joseph R. “Beau” Biden III National Guard/Reserve Center. The signs will be unveiled at a ceremony Monday, on Memorial Day.

The son of Vice President Joe Biden enlisted in 2003 and deployed to Iraq in 2008 for a year with the 261st Theater Tactical Signal Brigade. He earned the Legion of Merit and Bronze Star. He later served two terms as Delaware’s attorney general.

He died a year ago of brain cancer at age 46.

The Guard says Joe Biden and other family members are expected to attend the ceremony.
