Stamp of Approval
The United States Postal Service (USPS) is part of our national heritage going all the way back to the Revolutionary War. The Founding Fathers believed a postal system to be so important that they wrote it into the U.S. Constitution, compelling Congress to establish one. As America grew, so did the USPS. The post office — and its ubiquitous postage stamps — became a part of daily life, an important conduit for news and information, a vehicle for commerce, and of course, a way to stay in touch with friends and family. And the changes have kept coming. This year, the USPS announced plans to replace its aging fleet of vans with redesigned vehicles, many of which will be electric.
