Need to know

Flag, CFC reminders offered

Two employees hold U.S. and POW-MIA flags
Alameda, CA, Customer Services Supervisor Rosann Sosa and Los Angeles Processing and Distribution Center Mail Handler Carl Ball hold U.S. and POW-MIA flags recently.

Flag notice. Sunday, Nov. 11, is Veterans Day, one of six days each year that Postal Service facilities are required to fly the POW-MIA flag.

Because Veterans Day is a designated USPS holiday, facilities should raise the POW-MIA flag on the last business day before the holiday.

The flag honors the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces held as prisoners of war or listed as missing in action.

The POW-MIA flag must fly below the U.S. flag.

For more information, refer to the Postal Service’s online guidelines on U.S. flag display and maintenance, as well as the requirements for displaying the POW-MIA flag.

Help still wanted. Link still wants to hear from Postal Service employees whose lives have been touched by the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC).

During last year’s campaign, Link highlighted:

  • Bernice Redden, a Clearwater, FL, customer services supervisor who credits several CFC charities for their help after her son was born with cerebral palsy
  • Stephen Waldorf, a Detroit acting multimedia specialist who benefitted from CFC organizations after being diagnosed with polio
  • Deborah Valentine, a Washington, DC, retail associate who supports several charities, including one that helped a relative beat addiction

If you’ve benefited from a CFC charity, too, let Link know.

Send an email to and tell the team about your CFC experiences. You could be featured in CFC coverage later in the fall.
