Courageous countdown: No. 1

Chicago Acting Customer Services Supervisor Bryan Thompson

Link is looking back at the year in “Heroes’ Corner” with a countdown of the five most-viewed articles.

Coming in at No. 1 is “Public defender,” the story of Bryan Thompson.

The Chicago acting customer services supervisor bravely rushed to a co-worker’s defense when her former boyfriend gained access to the building and attacked her.

“Bryan is a humble person,” said local Acting Customer Services Manager Deborah Saffore. “But his quick actions may well have saved another employee’s life. I’m thankful he was here and for what he did.”

If you know of heroic colleagues like Thompson, the Postal Service wants to know about them, too.

Employees recognized through the Postmaster General Heroes’ Program must be nominated for the award. Corporate Communications reviews nominations for accuracy, then sends them to the Inspection Service and the Office of Inspector General for approval.

Following approval, each nominee receives a commendation letter from Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan.

Honorees are also featured in Link’s “Heroes’ Corner” column. Additionally, a heroes’ wall at USPS headquarters in Washington, DC, displays stories and photos.

To nominate an employee, complete PS Form 400, Corporate Communications PMG Hero Nomination, and email it to
