Photos: Portland, OR, City Carrier Jeff Brosy found a customer in desperate need of help while making his rounds this summer. The Texarkana Post Office, which literally straddles the state border between Texas and Arkansas, as marked by a sign at its entrance (inset).

Traditions of heroics and customer service in every American community are well represented in October's Your Postal Podcast stories.

First, you'll hear about a new Portland, OR, letter carrier whose quick actions helped save the life of a customer.

Next you'll hear a tale of two cities -- and two states -- which get outstanding mail service from one Post Office that could be excused for having a split personality.

There's also a roundup of postal news, plus details on how you can enter to win collectible stamp items.
