The Postal Service kicked off the year’s second quarter by dedicating the Maya Angelou stamp with help from first lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and several others.

Later in April, Forrester Research released a study that found USPS and the National Parks Service deliver the best customer service in the federal government.

Other April highlights included the kickoff of National Card and Letter Writing Month and Link’s interview with Chief Operating Officer David Williams, who discussed his career path and thoughts on the Postal Service’s future.

At the National Postal Forum in May, USPS leaders honored several employees and showcased the organization’s recent investments in technology.

Postal Service employees also displayed their community spirit in May, collecting 70.6 million pounds of food through Stamp Out Hunger and dedicating stamps that honor the Special Olympics World Games and the efforts to find the nation’s missing children.

Additionally, USPS kept the mail moving throughout the May riots in Baltimore, while Postal Inspectors and Postal Police Officers recovered almost $75,000 worth of missing mailing equipment on a single day in June.
