Flag notice. Monday, Nov. 11, is Veterans Day, one of six days each year that Postal Service facilities are required to fly the POW-MIA flag.
Because Veterans Day is a designated USPS holiday, facilities should raise the POW-MIA flag on the last business day before the holiday.
The flag honors the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces held as prisoners of war or listed as missing in action.
The POW-MIA flag must fly below the U.S. flag.
For more information, refer to the Postal Service’s Administrative Support Manual, which explains the organization’s guidelines on U.S. flag display and maintenance, as well as the requirements for displaying the POW-MIA flag.
Link mobile reminder. USPS wants managers, supervisors and others to tell craft employees about Link mobile, the Link site’s mobile-friendly version.
Link mobile offers the same content available on Link’s desktop version — including news reports, feature stories and informational videos — but in a format that’s easy to read on smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.
The site is helpful to employees who don’t have regular access to postal computers but want to stay in the know.
Employees can access the site at www.usps.link, where they can also subscribe to weekly emails with the latest Link highlights.
