From USPS News Link:
As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving and count our blessings, I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to you for your hard work this year. You did a tremendous job in the face of significant challenges.
You kept the mail moving through several natural disasters, including the western wildfires, the summer derecho and Hurricane Sandy. In each of these instances, you provided excellent service on the job, even while many of you were dealing with disaster-related hardships at home.
You also played an essential role during this year’s elections, when millions of voters cast their ballots by mail. Thanks to you, our work in this area went smoothly, once again demonstrating the power of mail as a communications channel.
I’m especially appreciative that you continued to pull together to help make the changes needed to move the Postal Service forward. No matter what challenge came our way — and there were many — you rose to the occasion and reminded everyone why the Postal Service is so important to America’s future.
During the next few weeks, our customers will be counting on us to deliver their holiday cards and packages. This is another opportunity for the Postal Service to grow its business — and I know we’re all eager to make the most of it.
So thank you again for everything you do. I appreciate your hard work and dedication, and I wish each of you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
