The US Postal Service issued the following announcement today regarding the suspension of postal service on Wednesday, December 5th.

President Donald J. Trump has proclaimed Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, as a National Day of Mourning in remembrance of former President George H.W. Bush.

Out of respect for the 41st President of the United States and to honor his vast contributions to our country during his lifetime, and consistent with the Presidential Proclamation, the United States Postal Service will suspend regular mail deliveries, retail services and administrative office activity on Dec. 5.

We will provide limited package delivery service on that day to ensure that our network remains fluid and we do not experience any impacts to our package delivery operations that might negatively affect our customers or business partners during the remainder of our busy holiday season.

  1. Typical bureaucratic double-speak – they say “Out of respect for the 41st President..”, but what they mean is “We’re using this as as yet another lame excuse to get a day off at taxpayer expense”.
