SEMBACH , Germany – While his supervisor describes him as the “poster child” for the Installation Management Command Europe Postal Operations Branch , Frederick Morris insists the real stars are the front - line staff working at the 34 postal facilities across Europe he helps support as the postal transportation coordinator . Frederick Morris , IMCOM - Europe postal transportation coordinator , ensures mail moves across Europe to the 34 facilities supported by the Postal Operations Branch . “There’s more to it than what people see , ” Morris said of Europe’s postal operations . As the transportation coordinator , Morris ensures mail moves out via ground transportation once it arrives at Frankfurt airport in Germany , or one of the smaller postal hubs in Europe . “It’s morale , ” Morris said . “People love getting mail , ” and he added , he loves his job ensuring its delivery . Morris started his federal service 34 years ago , straight out of high school , as an Army cook stationed in Germany . While that may not seem like a natural transition into postal service , Morris said his role was to facilitate the logistics of delivering rations to all of the dining facilities . After his four years of service , he started looking for jobs and transitioned to the postal center in Darmstadt . Since he started working in postal operations , Morris said he’s seen staffing numbers fall and automation move in , but his favorite part of the job is still customer service . While he doesn’t have face - to - face interaction with customers as often , he said he loves interacting with the postal personnel at the Army’s facilities . While each postal service center is a little bit different based on facilities and capabilities , Morris said customers can help keep the mail running smoothly by checking their mail regularly and ensuring they have customs and finance information ready when mailing items out . “There’s a lot of work that’s in the back , and people don’t realize that or see that , ” Morris said . For those who want to learn more about the process , Morris suggested checking out volunteer opportunities at a local postal service center , and reiterated it’s the front - line staff who sort and deliver tons of mail daily that deserve the communities’ recognition and thanks .
