Postal Service Encourages Writing Letters to Service Members
WASHINGTON, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Second only to the Pentagon in hiring veterans, the Postal Service employs more than 108, 000 former service men and women — comprising nearly one in five employees in its career workforce. Today, almost 1, 000 dedicated postal employees continue to serve in an active duty status.
With Veterans Day just around the corner, the Postal Service is encouraging America to salute the sacrificesof the men and women who serve in the U.S. military by using the new Purple Heart Medal Forever stamp issued in early September.
“The Postal Service helps families stay connected to their loved ones who defend our country, ” said Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe. “Service members look forward to letters from home. When springing into action, letters from home are not left behind on a cot or at the bottom of a duffle bag. Those letters are tucked safely in pockets. They’re kept close to their heart — and they’re pulled out and read again and again.”
Mail sent to service members at Army Post Office (APO), Fleet Post Office (FPO) and Diplomat Post Office (DPO) addresses is mailed at the domestic rather than international price. As a domestic stamp, the Purple Heart Medal Forever stamp is good for mailing one-ounce cards and letters addressed to individuals at these locations. Using the current First-Class one-ounce letter price, the stamp can also be applied to mailing packages.
