Carr watch

Kenneth Carr Sr., an acting IT client support specialist at USPS headquarters in Washington, DC, was arriving at work one day last summer when he spotted an older pedestrian in need of assistance.

Carr saw the woman take a tumble on the L’Enfant Plaza promenade near the building, so he rushed to her aid, safely helped her stand up, guided her to a bench where she could sit down, and asked Postal Police officers stationed nearby to call 911.

The Postal Service employee stayed with the woman, comforting her until paramedics arrived.

She recovered from the incident.

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