Missing in Milwaukee

Letter Carrier Roxanne Dreyfus was recently making deliveries in Milwaukee when she grew concerned that mail was piling up at the home of an 82-year-old customer who normally greets her every day.

Dreyfus alerted a neighbor, who requested a wellness check when the man couldn’t be reached.

Police officers responded to the scene and found the customer unconscious on the second floor of his residence, where he’d experienced a medical emergency.

The man was rushed to a hospital, and he is recovering 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.
