Vigilant victory

Letter Carrier Simon Rodriguez was recently making deliveries in a Houston neighborhood when he grew concerned about a customer whose mail was piling up and whose car had not been moved in several days.

Rodriguez alerted a neighbor, who contacted the man’s daughter.

Unable to reach him, his daughter asked authorities to check on him. Emergency responders soon discovered that the man had fallen and was in dire need of medical attention.

“Due to Simon’s attention to detail and concern for his customers, a life was saved,” said local Customer Services Manager Madi Bellard. “The entire community is relieved and thankful, too, for such a vigilant letter carrier.”

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