USPS shows gratitude for veterans

One side of the USPS military challenge-style coin features an American flag design stamped with the words “Proud Veteran.”

To mark Military Appreciation Month in May, the Postal Service is distributing tokens of appreciation to employees who are veterans.

“There are approximately 100,000 former and current service members working for the Postal Service, and we are proud to honor their contributions to our nation in the armed services and their continued service to our customers,” said Chief Human Resources Officer Isaac Cronkhite.

All military veterans will receive a certificate of appreciation for their service and a letter of thanks from Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan.

Employees marking five years of service with USPS in 2020 will also receive a #PostalProud challenge coin.

The coin is double-sided and shaped like a military dog tag. One side displays the Postal Service logo and a message thanking the employee for his or her service. The other side features an American flag design stamped with the words “Proud Veteran.”

Due to social distancing rules, items will be mailed directly to eligible employees throughout May instead of presented at ceremonies.

Employees who have questions can contact their district’s veterans coordinator. A list is available on LiteBlue.
