USPS still seeking nominees for the Postmaster General Heroes’ Program

USPS is seeking nominees for the Postmaster General Heroes’ Program, which honors employees who go above and beyond the call of duty.

The program, which will mark its 16th year in 2019, is based on a simple idea: Postal Service employees know the habits of their customers and the rhythms of their communities, and are often the first to notify emergency personnel when something is wrong.

In recent years, employees have been honored for spotting fires, helping customers hurt in falls, rendering aid in medical emergencies and safely stopping assaults.

Employees must be nominated for the award. Corporate Communications reviews nominations for accuracy, then sends them to the Inspection Service and the Office of Inspector General for approval.

Following approval, each nominee receives a commendation letter from Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan.

Honorees are also featured in Link’s “Heroes’ Corner” column. Additionally, a heroes’ wall at USPS headquarters in Washington, DC, displays stories and photos, which are updated monthly.

To nominate an employee, complete PS Form 400, Corporate Communications PMG Hero Nomination, and email it to

To download or print the form, go to, where you’ll also find the “Heroes’ Corner” archives.

There are many good carriers who go ‘above and beyond’ in delivering the mail.
It’s work ethic and taking care of the job that goes unrecognized at the local level.
It’s too bad that today’s supervisors have not learned those traits.
