The USPS and its predecessors have survived many trials and tribulations, the bloodiest being the American Civil War that began in 1862 and culminated in 1865.
Today the USPS has seen a decline in mail being sent due to advances in communication however access to postage services has never been easier. Leading banks, Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, leading pharmacies and retail outlets and many other business outlets have all added postage stamps to the list of services they offer.

The Decline Of USPS:
The United States Postal Service or USPS needs our help if they are to continue as they are into the future. Three centuries of exemplary service has been provided throughout the country but technological advances have shown a marked decline in the number of packages sent throughout the country.
If we lose the USPS as it has existed in the past we would be shutting down an integral part of American traditions and one of the last vestiges of our rich history. Residents throughout Virginia and the rest of the United States may need to make an extra effort to ensure that we keep postal services operating well into the future.
The USPS is doing everything possible on their part to keep the system up and running. By bringing postal services closer to the people they have made it easier than ever to send or receive a package. They also continue to offer extra services on top of postal services making USPS outlets convenient and easy locations to buy certain everyday goods.
I think no form of communication conveys emotion quite like how a letter does and it would be a real shame if postal services we know today began to fade away into history.
