    Great story! Great human being like most postal workers! Unfortunately, the Postal Service doesn’t or won’t toot it’s own horn enough to awaken the masses trying to destroy it! In my 34 years with this great organization our strength was always our people and we must never lose sight of that! Always hold your heads up high, no matter who is trying to dump on you!
