“The Eagle Always Faces Forward,” a new video from USPS, is available on the organization’s YouTube channel.

About ‘Faces.’ The Eagle Always Faces Forward,” a fast-paced video that shows the power and reach of the Postal Service network, is now available on YouTube.

The 1-minute, 22-second video debuted at this year’s National Postal Forum and also was showcased during the most recent episode of Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan’s “Business Focus” series.

The video features clips of employees delivering mail, packages being processed inside USPS plants, customers using Informed Delivery and more.

If you’re unable to stream video from external sites on postal computers, you can use a personal smartphone, tablet or other device to visit and watch the segment off the clock.

Take two. The Postal Service will release this year’s second United States Air Mail stamp Saturday, Aug. 11.

The first stamp, printed in blue, celebrates the inaugural airmail flights performed by Army Signal Corps pilots in 1918. USPS released this stamp in May.

The second stamp, printed in red, marks the Post Office Department’s takeover of the service in August 1918.

The Postal Service will dedicate the stamp Aug. 11 in College Park, MD. This week’s media advisory has more information.
