Guam - It all began with reports of mail being returned to sender followed by mayors being inundated with complaints by angry residents over a letter they had received in the mail, not only changing mailing addresses but apparently eliminating entire villages. Today the USPS officer in charge Christopher Ward addressed the mayors and apologized.

"I talked to the Mayors Council and apologized to them and their constituents for any confusion that the initial letter may have caused. We deeply apologize for that, it wasn't our intent on just trying to get people to address their mail better," he explained.

They will now be working with DPW and the MCOG to continue to educate the public on how to properly address their mail.
