Have you ever wondered what a day at work is like for the people who fill up your mailbox? We delivered on a listener suggestion for the latest installment of our At Work With series, and spent the day with a rural letter carrier.

Connie Gunn has been a mail carrier out of Scappoose, Oregon, for 21 years. She originally applied to work at the United States Postal Service (USPS) in 2001 after she separated from the military as a combat medic and a radio operator in the Coast Guard. She had to apply for a job — any job — to keep her unemployment checks coming, and she didn’t study for the postal exam — not even knowing if she wanted the job. But she got it, and over two decades later, she’s a veteran carrier who also serves as a union steward and trains new carriers.
