The Littlest Mailman

Carter and Postman Mike have been best buddies since Mike started delivering mail in his neighborhood.  The  four-year-old boy who idolizes his neighborhood letter carrier got the chance to see his hero in action. The United States Postal Service let the boy go behind the scenes and made him an honorary mailman for a day. The Knoxville Tennesee post office invited Carter to come to the post office and see what postman Mike does besides delivering mail.  They looked around and met the other postal workers.  Everyone was excited to meet Carter since they had heard so much about him.  They also presented him a gift of a hat and a little truck.  They gave him a certificate to make him an honorary post man.  How great for this post office to do this for this little 4 year old.  That is a bunch of caring individuals who would go out of their way to make this day special for this little guy. Great job  Knoxville.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

Mailman saves child from choking

South Carolina mailman is being hailed a hero after he saves baby from choking.   Eli Cooper about to turn one and like a typical one year old he puts everything in his mouth.  Stephie Cooper, Eli’s mom turned around to find him choking on a plastic wrapper.  She tried to help him by beating him on the back but it wasn’t coming out.  She ran outside to get help and found Chris Brown the mailman.  Brown didn’t say a word but just grabbed the child and did the Heimlich on him.  The plastic wrapper came flying out.  Brown said he learned this during a training years ago.  He is definately their hero.  He is too humble to accept the title of hero.  Brown said, “I really don’t feel that way because to e I would have done it for anyone or I hope someone would have done it for my children”.   Whether he thinks so or not this man is our hero.  Thank you Chris Brown for being there for Eli so he can celebrate his first birthday.

Mailman Hero Saves House From Burning Down, Then Finishes His Route!!

Have you ever thought of your mailman as a hero?  Recently, I’ve seen a number of different stories where a mailman has saved a life in various situations.  In each case, the mailman just “happened” to be in the right place at the right time………and then, he also just happened to care enough to step out of his normal duties and save a life.  In a couple of cases recently (although they were articles and not videos), I read how a mailman (two different carriers in two different parts of the U.S.) helped save the life of someone who had had a heart attack.  Today’s story is about a mailman that came across a home on his route that had caught fire.  Our hero mailman, hooked up the hose out front and walked into the house and began putting out the flames.  He kept at it until the fire department arrived. When he saw them, using much better equipment start getting the last few spots to stop it completely, this mailman went back outside and just went about his business in finishing up his mail route.  He didn’t wait to see how it would end up.  He knew it would be a happy ending because he had gotten most of it and the “real pros” were there now.  I didn’t even mention that there was a woman inside who didn’t know what to do.  He literally came at JUST at the right time.  Not only do I love how he saved the day, but to then go about his business, as if it didn’t happen??  That makes me admire this mailman even more!!  Just one more “every day hero”!!  Keep letting us know of others that you come across!!!  Thanks!!

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!
