Steven Finkel, Las Vegas, NV

Las Vegas Letter Carrier Steven Finkel became concerned when he noticed mail accumulating in a customer’s mailbox. He alerted a neighbor, who entered the woman’s house and found her lying on a floor where she fell three days earlier. The neighbor credited Finkel with saving the woman’s life. “He’s the kind of mailman you can only imagine in a Norman Rockwell painting,” she said.
