The Letter Carriers stamp honors the "mailpersons" (over 240,000 of them in 1989, with more than 40,000 of them women) who deliver the mail to over 100 million delivery points across the U.S. The three smiling carriers pictured seem to bear out the motto: "Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."
