Neuman, Ray: Commendation (September 1966)
Ray Neuman, Acting Postmaster has been commended by William H. Neal, National Director of the U. S. Bonds Division, for his leadership and service to the Treasury Department’s School Savings Program.
In a letter to the Postmaster, Mr. Neal said “The mission of School Savings is in many ways more important today than at any time since the end of World War 11. Today’s young people, growing up in a world whose troubles admit to no easy solutions, ned grounding in the simple truths of their American heritage as preparation for the challenges they face. The lesson of thrift comes even more so when it also involves the investment of dimes and quarters, often saved at a sacrifice, in the future of our country through Savings Stamps and bonds.
School Savings, which operates in Loyal schools, is part of the nationwide Saving Bonds Program. Mr. Neal told the Postmaster that” the good service you render plays a major part in its success.” Saving stamps in five denominations, from 10 cents to $5, are on sale at all times at the post office and on Stamp Day in schools.
Acting postmaster, Ray Neuman commented that “the sale of Saving Stamps to the public—especially to young people through the School Savings Plan--is a service we are proud to offer. I know of no finer way to build for a better tomorrow than by training our youth in the sound American heritage of thrift.”
