Leading by example

Letter Carrier Margaret Corey was recently delivering mail in Whitefield, NH, accompanied by a city carrier assistant in training, when she noticed something out of the ordinary.

An older customer who normally greets her daily from a chair in his living room was nowhere to be seen.

Corey stopped to look more closely, and she soon spotted the man in medical distress on the floor.

The Postal Service employee immediately called 911 and remained on the scene until emergency responders arrived.

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