To all those still in the trenches, just in case manglement forgot to mention it, today is National Postal Worker Day.

--  Take pride in what you do.  You are performing a valuable service, whether manglement or the public actually notices.

--  And thanx for all you do -- usually under impossible conditions.

<h3>NATIONAL POSTAL WORKER DAY</h3>
National Postal Worker Day is observed annually on July 1st.  This is a day to appreciate and thank the numerous men and women who work consistently and diligently deliver all of our mail and packages.  These employees suffer some of the harshest working conditions, yet continue to persevere six days a week.

Across the United States, postal workers walk an average of 4 to 8 miles carrying a full load of letters and packages and delivering them promptly to each of our doorsteps.  There are approximately 490,000 postal workers across the United States. They work in all kinds of weather including extreme heat and cold, rain and sleet and blizzards, too.   

Besides severe weather, they have also dealt with unusual packages.  In 1913 the postal service started delivering packages up to a maximum 11 pounds.  The most surprising package to arrive for delivery was a small child.

Of course, the USPS Facebook page made no mention of National Postal Worker Day whatsoever. Their social media team was more concerned with Disney villains stamps and textured stamp coatings. Good job!
