Baby blue

Aaron Tromsness, the officer in charge at the Galena, KS, Post Office, recently had a special delivery to ensure:

His pregnant wife, Lindsey, had gone into labor with their fourth child, and as Aaron drove her to a hospital, they realized they would not make it there before she gave birth.

Aaron immediately stopped on the side of a highway, called 911 and followed the dispatcher’s instructions, helping Lindsey safely deliver a boy, Chase Ezekiel, whom they call Zeke.

Moments after Aaron clamped the umbilical cord with a shoestring, paramedics arrived and took Lindsey and Zeke to the hospital.

After a brief stay, they were cleared to return home.

Employees featured in “Heroes’ Corner” also receive letters of commendation through the Postmaster General Heroes’ Program. The nomination form is available on Blue.
