You've got mail
Airman 1st Class Steven Johnson, 100th Communications Squadron Post Office postal clerk, scans the barcode from an incoming package Nov. 4. Once the barcode is scanned, Airman Johnson checks to ensure it is the same number as printed on the label, then checks the last name of the mail box owner, to ensure the package is labelled correctly for the right box. At this time of year, an average of 200 to 300 boxes per day come into the post office, vastly increasing nearer the holidays. Airman Johnson said it usually takes him between 20 to 30 minutes to scan all the packages each day. Once the barcodes are scanned, the information is downloaded to the computer and slips printed out for customers to notify them of their packages. (U.S. Air Force photo by Karen Abeyasekere)
