Tie a Navy Blue Ribbon Around Your Mailbox Pole to Honor Postal Workers–Grass Roots Effort!
Summary of eRumor:
To honor postal workers who are in the line of fire when it comes to bioterrorism, tie a navy blue ribbon around your mailbox pole.
There is no official organization that we know of that is sponsoring this.
It’s an idea that occurred to someone and that person decided to start an email claiming it was a nationwide campaign.

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
A nationwide campaign is underway to honor postal workers who are on the front lines daily, especially now because of biological warfare.
In support of our nation’s carriers, clerks, mailhandlers, drivers and all those in-between, everyone is being asked to tie navy blue ribbons around their mailbox poles.
This is a wonderful opportunity to honor postal employees, quiet heroes in their own right, and share our commitment to keep our nation united by keeping the mail moving.
Please tie a blue ribbon around your mailbox pole and spread the word!
God Bless America.
