Rural Carrier Stacy Chamberlain was recently making deliveries in Gays Mills, WI, when he noticed that an older customer’s mail was piling up.
Chamberlain alerted the local Postmaster, who asked the sheriff’s department to check on the man.
Officers determined that the customer needed medical attention, and he was hospitalized.
His daughter later contacted the Post Office to thank Chamberlain for taking action.
The Postal Service employee also was recognized for a heroic act last year.
