Courageous countdown: No. 8

Greendale, WI, Retail Associate Abbie Campagna

Link is looking back at the year in “Heroes’ Corner” with a countdown of the 10 most-viewed articles.

Coming in at No. 8 is “Dear Abbie,” the story of Abbie Campagna.

The retail associate was on duty in Greendale, WI, when she grew concerned about a 91-year-old customer.

Over the course of a few days, the woman had purchased thousands of dollars’ worth of postal money orders and mailed them to addresses around the country.

Campagna alerted local police and the Postal Inspection Service, who determined that the customer was being targeted in a luxury car sweepstakes scam.

“Her family was very thankful that Abbie stopped her from being scammed,” said Greendale Postmaster Lisa Love-Hoffert.

If you know of heroic colleagues like Campagna, 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 Postal Inspection Service and the Office of Inspector General for approval.

Following approval, each nominee receives a commendation letter from Postmaster General Louis DeJoy.

Honorees are also featured in Link’s “Heroes’ Corner” column.

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