When This Mailman Took A Wrong Turn, He Came Upon A Scene That Made His Military Training Kick In

The United States Post Office has a very specific delivery system. Indeed, letters and parcels are sorted by zip code, bundled together with other packages bound for the same zip code range, and then flown to their destinations right across the country. Upon arrival, the items are subsequently sorted so that the mail carrier on the right route can deliver them.

This system is so well tuned that most employees have a specific route that they follow each and every day. In fact, many workers say the twists and turns of their delivery area become ingrained in their minds over time. So when mailman Ben Garcia made a wrong turn in Arvada, Colorado, it could be seen as being something out of the ordinary. Except for one vital detail.
