Letter Carrier Heroes head to the Hill

Today, in addition to being honored by NALC President Fredric Rolando at a special luncheon in Washington DC, the National Association of Letter Carriers Heroes of the Year met with their respective Representatives and Senators on Capitol Hill. Lawmakers shared their thanks and appreciation to our heroes, sharing laughs and stories and snapping pictures together.

This is an excellent opportunity for lawmakers to be reminded of the special duty letter carriers serve every day in our country’s communities and that carrying the mail is just a part of the service letter carriers provide.

You can find a few of the photos taken on the day below.
