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

Coming in at No. 2 is The ride of her life,” the story of Postmaster Margaret “Peggy” Findley and Angela Feldman, customer services manager.

When Hudson, FL, Letter Carrier Shelly Martin got ready to leave for the day, Findley observed that she looked a little peaked.

Findley asked if the carrier was OK. Martin responded that she felt unwell and was experiencing pain.

Without hesitation, Findley drove Martin to an emergency room while Feldman alerted Martin’s family.

Martin was diagnosed with a life-threatening condition and scheduled for surgery the next day.

The carrier said she is extremely grateful for the postal partners — Findley’s quick thinking and Feldman’s assist.

If you know of heroic colleagues like Feldman and Findley, 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.
