VETS: Heart of postal service

Print Article

I would like to give my sincere thanks to all military veterans who have given so much to this great nation. They deserve our positive support for protecting our freedom.

Let’s support those who have supported us. Military veterans have sacrificed so much for our freedoms, which we cannot seem to thank them enough for. Many, after serving, look for employment back in the United States. Currently, the U.S. Postal Service employs 113,000 military veterans who again also serve this country, many in a different kind of uniform.

If we are to continue to “thank them” we must support the U.S. Postal Service. All of the Postal Services’ revenue is made by affordable postage sales and not by taxes.

Congress must also “thank veterans” by passing laws that restore the Postal Services’ financial health without reducing service to our customers. The people of America deserve the best possible service that we can possibly give them.

So the next time you purchase stamps or mail a package through the U.S. Postal Service, you are “thanking a veteran” by providing him or her with a job they can live on.
