Receiving mail is seen as a basic right throughout the USA thanks to the USPS and their dedication to ensure that the people that make up this great nation always have easy access to postage services wherever they may be.

USPS And The State Of Illinois:

Nicknamed the “Land of Lincoln”, after their most illustrious citizen Abraham Lincoln, who became the 16th President of the United States of America, the State of Illinois has many other famous personalities to boast of, among them Ronald Reagan who was born and raised in the state, who also went onto to become President.

There was President Ulysses S. Grant and more recently President Barack Obama who also had connections here, and its not just presidential connections there is more to this State than we can imagine.

The USPS has come a very long way from when it all began in 1775 about a year before the United States of America received our independence from the British Crown. Since then there has been tremendous progress and with a staggering 617,254 employees serving the 326,473,013 citizens of the country keeping everything running smoothly is quite a task.

It may be impossible to reach every citizen in every corner of this vast country but the USPS has made a huge effort to bring their services closer to the people.
