Pin crowd

PMG Megan J. Brennan receives her 30-year pin from James H. Bilbray, chairman of the USPS Board of Governors.

The Postal Service has a longstanding tradition of honoring employees with a lapel pin when they reach a major milestone in their employment.

A pin is given when an employee reaches the 25-year mark, and then the employee receives a new pin every five years thereafter. Employees who have 50 years with USPS receive a pin and a congratulatory letter from the Postmaster General.

The tradition of honoring long-serving employees continued recently when PMG Megan J. Brennan received a pin to mark her 30th year with the Postal Service.

Brennan joined USPS as a letter carrier in 1986.

James H. Bilbray, chairman of the USPS Board of Governors, presented the pin to the PMG, thanking her for her service and leadership.

Bilbray said the pin also symbolizes how the Postal Service values institutional knowledge from every rank and craft.
