USPS reported its latest quarterly financial results last week.

Last week, Link covered the Postal Service’s latest quarterly financial report.

During fiscal year 2024’s second quarter (Jan. 1-March 31), the organization reported operating revenue of $19.7 billion, an increase of 2.1 percent compared with the same quarter one year earlier.

We also told you about a proposed price change for Parcel Select and a video highlighting this year’s stamp lineup.

Additionally, we told you about the new Project Safe Delivery section on the Postal Inspection Service’s website and warned you about social engineering scams, which occur when cybercriminals use technical, interpersonal and psychological methods to try to get financial and personal information from their victims.

Finally, our “People” column introduced you to James Chambers, the Fort Myers, FL, postmaster, who recently swore in son Quaid Chambers as the Dumas, TX, postmaster.

“Being able to administer the oath to my son was a very special time for me,” the elder Chambers said. “I am very proud both as a postmaster and a father.”
