I’m with the Postal Service and wanted to give you a heads up that we’re celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Air Mail Service.
It all began 100 years ago on May 15, 1918, when a World War I era open-cockpit biplane took off from the Polo Grounds (between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument) in Washington, DC.
By the way, Charles Lindbergh was an airmail pilot before he flew solo from New York to Paris in 1927.
