Link covered the National Postal Forum last week, including Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s keynote address at the mailing and shipping industry’s largest annual conference.

“The Delivering for America plan is about inspiring a change to the culture of the Postal Service team. Through our work together, this is happening. The men and women of the United States Postal Service are engaged in transforming the organization into a vibrant one, which is necessary for the long-term service the nation requires,” DeJoy said.

We also reported on this year’s USPS National Dog Bite Awareness Campaign, which highlighted a sobering statistic: More than 5,800 employees were attacked by dogs last year, up from around 5,300 cases the year before.

Elsewhere, Link offered guidance on the Hatch Act and warned you about the dangers of insider threats and phishing schemes.

Additionally, we introduced you to “Heroes” such as Braderick White, a Kansas City, KS, letter carrier who came to the rescue of a customer being attacked by a dog, and we went “On the Job” with Ellen Damin, the postmaster for Yosemite National Park in California.

Damin loves working in one of the nation’s most scenic spots.

“The entire vibe of the park is just wonderful,” she said. “It’s pure joy. Think about when you last visited a national park — everyone is on vacation, everyone is happy.”
