Carry her

Clark, MO, Rural Carrier Associate John Bondy

Rural Carrier Associate John Bondy was delivering mail on a wet November day last year in Clark, MO, when he spotted a pregnant customer collapsed on muddy ground near her front porch.

Bondy rushed to aid the woman, who was unconscious but breathing. He immediately called 911, carried her inside, covered her with a blanket and stayed with her until emergency responders arrived.

The customer contacted the local Post Office a week later to say that she was doing well.

“She was very grateful to John for saving her,” said Customer Services Supervisor David Dopler. “In fact, he quite possibly saved two lives that day.”

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