Dodge City, KS, Postmaster Dorothy Briseno-Bremer recently had the pleasure of presenting City Carrier Rex Romesburg with a 40-year service recognition award and pin.

Romesburg started his career as a part-time flexible employee working 2-10:30 a.m. for three years before deciding to become a carrier. For him, the decision was one of the best career moves he ever made.

“If you like what you do, you will work hard at it,” he said.

Romesburg enjoys what he does for a living, and his customers reap the benefits of his enthusiasm. During an emergency, he’s also a person who leaps to action to protect fellow employees.

When a rural carrier associate (RCA) began choking on a meal last week, Romesburg quickly intervened and performed the Heimlich maneuver on him. The action saved the RCA’s life.

“Rex is a hard worker and takes pride in his job, his customers, and his co-workers,” said Briseno-Bremer. “It’s a pleasure to have him on our team.”
