CHICAGO (CBS) — Three postal carriers who have a combined 137 years with the U.S. Postal Service and military were given a little retirement send-off Wednesday morning at the Rogers Park post office.
Bob Peterson is one of three mail carriers retiring from the Rogers Park post office, and has more than 53 years of combined service with the U.S. Postal Service and the military.
He said his worst time on the job was the infamous Chicago blizzard of 1967, when
“There’s nobody here at the station that was here for that one,” he said.
Peterson, 70, received the 2-million-mile safe driver award a couple years ago.
“I’m proud of that, and I tell my wife that, too, every time she corrects my driving. As we’re on the road, I always tell her, ‘Who got the 2-million-mile driving award?’” Peterson said.
