Albuquerque, NM, Uptown Station City Carrier Lawrence “Jerry” Urban recently reached a major career milestone. After a considerable work history of steadfast service, Urban marked his 50th year of federal service.

In a celebratory event, Uptown employees gathered to cheer his significant accomplishment. Arizona District Manager John DiPeri attended the gathering and thanked Urban for his service and dedication.

“Jerry is not only working as a letter carrier after 50 years of federal service, he is on the overtime desired list,” said DiPeri. “That’s impressive.”

Before beginning his service with USPS at the Eldorado Station (now the Steve Schiff Station), Urban served eight years in the Air Force. DiPeri presented Urban with a framed art piece with a New Mexico Statehood and U.S. Department of Air Force stamps at the event to honor Urban’s time at both agencies.

“Jerry is one of the hardest working carriers at the unit,” said Uptown Station City Carrier Vince Martinez. “He is willing to carry overtime on any route. He is an employee the newly hired carriers should use as their role model.”

“The Postal Service has been good to me,” Urban said about his career milestone. “There are a lot of good people here.”
