Home safe

Rural Carrier Laurel Jansen was delivering mail on a spring afternoon in Dorr, MI, when she spotted a 6-year-old boy walking alone after getting off a school bus.

Worried for the lad’s safety, Jansen offered to accompany him to his home. When they got there, he was locked out.

The Postal Service employee called the boy’s school, which contacted his parents, who were on their way home at the time.

Jansen stayed with the boy until his parents arrived.

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