Postal Service to suspend deliveries Wednesday to honor George HW Bush

George HW Bush

The U.S. Postal Service will suspend regular mail deliveries on Wednesday in remembrance of former President George H.W. Bush.

President Donald Trump has proclaimed Dec. 5 as a National Day of Mourning following Bush’s death on Nov. 30. 

He was 94. 

“Out of respect for the 41st President of the United States and to honor his vast contributions to our country during his lifetime, and consistent with the Presidential Proclamation, the United States Postal Service will suspend regular mail deliveries, retail services and administrative office activity on Dec.  5,” USPS said in a release. 

However, limited package delivery service will continue Wednesday to keep the Postal Service’s network “fluid.”
