Maybe you’ve seen them before, especially if you live in a rural part of the country, a private vehicle, someone’s regular car … except, it’s got a little sign on it that says U.S. MAIL.

In this 'Dear On Point' radio diary, we hear from a substitute rural postal carrier in Nebraska about what it means to her to deliver mail to rural Nebraskans for the USPS.


With editing from Meghna Chakrabarti and mixing from Tim Skoog.

This segment aired on May 19, 2020.
