On Wednesday, the United States Postal Service (USPS) is putting a halt on its regular mail deliveries to honor former President George H.W. Bush.
5 December has also been proclaimed by President Trump as a national morning day of mourning in honor of the 41st President who expired at the age of 94 on Friday. USPS wants to honor the contributions made by him throughout his lifetime to the country. The retail services, administrative office activity and regular mail deliveries will be suspended by USPS for the day.
For ensuring the fluidity of their network, only limited package delivery will be provided so that it may not have any negative impact on the operations of the package delivery and ultimately upset the customers and business partners during the busy holiday season.
This is not the first time that services have been put to a halt for honoring a President by USPS. The agency was also closed to show respect to John F. Kennedy, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Harry S. Truman, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford.
