Postal Service Employees Share their Experiences

Photo by Dave Reynolds

We often share the stories of our working lives with friends and family to let them know what we do when they’re not around. Some of those stories are quite unique and offer a fascinating perspective into a life that others will likely never experience. To celebrate and share the many facets of working life at the Postal Service, the Smithsonian National Postal Museum has recently launched a new website dedicated to the men and women of the 237-year-old American icon.

Within this new site, called People and the Post, visitors will have the opportunity to read stories about life as a postal employee aboard the USS Nimitz, on a railway mail car, and handling military mail in the Philippines. There are a variety of other stories to enjoy as well, and many have a video interview accompanying the story. The site also invites current and former postal employees to share their stories and experiences about their time with the Postal Service.

The People and the Post website offers a unique opportunity to have the working lives of postal employees immortalized within the Smithsonian National Postal Museum.

What interesting stories would you like to share with future generations?
