NALC Honors Heroic Carriers

from National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC)

We at Postal Uniforms Direct love this article that the National Association of Letter Carriers put out about the heroic acts of USPS Letter Carriers. #postalproud

Heroism, like the mail, comes in many packages—think of police officers or firefighters. But for some citizens in need of assistance, their heroes come in the form of concerned letter carriers.

Letter carriers are members of nearly every community in this nation and know when something is wrong. Spotting fires and injuries, they often are the first to respond. The following stories document their heroism. For them, delivering for America is all in a day’s work.

USPS Window Clerk Helps Stop Scam #postalproud

from KMTV

BELLEVUE, Neb. (KMTV) – A Bellevue woman was the target of a telemarketing scam, but an alert U.S. postal worker stopped her from being duped out of thousands of dollars.

Sales associate William Reynek has worked at the Bellevue Post Office for two and a half years.

He said on Tuesday an older woman came in with thousands of dollars in cash and wanted to express mail it to the east coast.

“I thought this was odd, and repeatedly asked her do you know the person you are sending to is, and what is it for? She didn’t really give me a clear cut answer,” said Reynek.

Postal Uniforms Direct is Postal Proud

Postal Uniforms Direct is #postalproud

Postal Uniforms Direct is #postalproud

On December 4, of 2015 the postal service announced a new initiative, #PostalProud.  The purpose of the initiative within the Postal Service is to promote employee pride and to emphasize core USPS principles, such as accurate scanning and delivering with care.

At Postal Uniforms Direct, we are #PostalProud because it brings us honor to serve the employees of the Postal Industry with the finest quality, Union Made in the USA postal uniforms.  We are #PostalProud because we have seen, time and time again, how the USPS employee rises up to go beyond what is expected of them.

Employees like Letter Carrier Aaron Beckstrom of Alliance, Nebraska who was delivering mail on a cold day when he noticed a man having trouble climbing the steps. Beckstrom helped the man up the steps safely and into his home. [read Aaron’s postal hero story here]

Or, Letter Carrier Norma Trapper Lockport, New York who called the utility company was when she smelled gas coming from a meter near the front door of a home where she was making a delivery.  [read Norma’s postal hero story here]

Almost every day, we read stories of postal employees who bring honor to the USPS with their heroic actions.  [check out the United States Postal Service’s Link Postal Heroes’ Corner here] We know, that for every story that is written, for every postal employee who is recognized, there are thousands of others who go unrecognized.

We want to say THANK YOU, to ALL postal heroes, sung or unsung.

At Postal Uniforms Direct, WE ARE #PostalProud

How Important are Your Postal Uniform Shoes?

Did you know that your feet alone have 25% of your body’s collected bone mass?  What that means is the likelihood of feet problems is very high.  If you don’t take care of your feet by wearing good shoes, you could be experiencing problems like foot pain, obviously, but also backaches, headaches and overall muscle tension throughout your body.

Not only are good shoes important, but also keep in mind that worn shoes start to lose their benefits.  So, replacing your shoes is also important!

Do your shoes look worn?

If so, you might consider replacing them! Rocky brand postal-approved footwear is among the top-sellers at Postal Uniforms Direct.

Below are a few of our TOP Rocky brand postal postal shoes:
