Post Office and Mail Collectibles and Gifts : Honor the Hardworking Mailman

Postal Collectibles Remind us to Honor some of Our Unsung Civil Servant Heroes

Postal Collectibles and gifts are fun, and they help remind us of the long history of service from the Post Office. This is true whether they are from the USPS, Royal Mail or any of the other mail services in the world.

Mail-men and mailwomen are under-appreciated for fighting snow, dogs, rain and leg cramps and customers with bad attitudes, just to bring us our mail. Talk about job stress!

It is unknown who set up Thank A Mailman Day on February 4, but I am glad that they did.

The Postman’s Oath

Neither Rain,

Nor Sleet,

Nor Dark Of Night

Shall Stay these

From the Swift completions of Their Rounds

Postmen are known and loved because they bring you the Mail NO MATTER WHAT!

The Pony Express

The Pony Express was the fast mail service of 1860-1861. Even though the Pony Express lasted for such a short amount of time, it was the infamous horseback mail service – the first one of the USA. Stories were told and movies were made of the infamous Pony Express – young men with more time than responsibilities would take on the job, knowing how dangerous it was as they were going on unchartered ground.

The route went from. Great Plains, the Rocky Mountains, and the High Sierra from St. Joseph, Missouri, to Sacramento, California. Before the telegraph, It became the west’s most direct means of east-west communication. Communication is always politically important, and this was no difference – it was vital for tying California closely with the Union just before the American Civil War.

My dad was a mailman – I am a postal brat

My daddy was a mailman, so I guess I am prejudiced in favor of the postal system.

I do know that I appreciate the post office system, and I convince you to do so too!

Take it from a postal brat – mailmen rock!
