The USPS traces its roots to 1775 during the Second Continental Congress, where Benjamin Franklin was appointed the first postmaster general. The cabinet-level Post Office Department was created in 1792 from Franklin's operation and transformed into its current form in 1971 under the Postal Reorganization Act.The USPS employed 626,764 workers (as of January 2014) and operated 211,654 vehicles in 2013. The USPS is the operator of the largest civilian vehicle fleet in the world. The USPS has exclusive access to letter boxes marked "U.S. Mail" and personal letterboxes in the United States.In the 1960s African Americans were appointed as postmasters of the nation’s three largestPost Offices – New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. By the end of the 20 the century African Americans comprised 21 percent of all postal employees, serving at all levels of the Postal Service.
Would you like the Postal Service to become your local banker, too? That idea has been floated by its inspector general.
The idea is the struggling service could produce needed revenue. And the network of offices would be needed in underserved areas like core cities and rural areas.
Critics wonder why adding more services would work. And why would a bank want to partner with the Postal Service?
So we asked members of our Email Interactive Group for their take. Some felt it makes more sense to bring back the pony express. Others are more optimistic.

During peace times, the military offered such great opportunities for paid education and professional training, that many young people rushed to take advantage of this chance to improve their lives and launch a successful career. Women rightfully demanded the opportunity for a paid college education and technical training, as well as an opportunity tto use their skills in the service of their country, which was all well and good diuring peace times. But now the world is at war, and what began for many women as a simple desire to avoid paying for college as a member of the National Guard became full fledged combat duty, complete with experiences of brutal killing and bloodshed. The memories don't go away. While stories are common about men suffering post traumatic stress syndrome from military battle, what about the women? What about wo,en who must come back and resume their roles as mothers of children? Are they also having nightmares and becoming substance abusers to numb the pain from horrifying memories? After all the maimings and killings and psychological damage, what have we as women earned about war? Have we learned that we don't want to go through it again? Or are some of us excited at the thought of having the power to kill? Today we'll talk to activists who hope to heighten awarnenss about the need for therapy, counselng, and psychological repair of war veterans who have returned home from combat and are now having a major impact on their families.
