Kind and caring

Chester, PA, Letter Carrier Joseph Ho

Chester, PA, Letter Carrier Joseph Ho was recently delivering mail when he spotted an older customer, Robert Dreisbach, who has Parkinson’s disease, lying on a sidewalk near his residence.

Ho rushed to check on Dreisbach, who was bleeding profusely from a head wound.

The Postal Service employee immediately called 911; alerted Dreisbach’s wife, Maryann; rendered first aid to slow the bleeding; and comforted the couple until paramedics arrived.

Robert was treated at a hospital, where physicians credited Ho with saving the man’s life.

Maryann later mailed a letter to the local Post Office.

“Joe deserves recognition for being a stellar employee and one heck of a kind, caring man,” she wrote. “My husband and I can’t say ‘thank you’ enough.”
