‘Exceptional service’

Palmer, AK, Letter Carrier Robert Haun

Letter Carrier Robert Haun was delivering mail on a spring day in Palmer, AK, when he came upon an older customer lying in a street.

Haun stopped to assist the man, whose wife was standing nearby calling 911.

She told the Postal Service employee her husband had collapsed, and finding no signs of breathing or a pulse, Haun — a former military CPR trainer — started chest compressions.

He revived the man by the time paramedics arrived and took over.

“You can always count on Bob to go the extra mile and provide the exceptional service our customers deserve,” said Palmer Postmaster Richard Smith.
