US Postal Services says mail delivery suspended Wednesday as George H.W. Bush's body arrives in Washington.

The U.S. Postal Service has announced it will not be delivering mail on Wednesday in honor of former President George H.W. Bush.

Wednesday, Dec. 5th has been declared a 'national day of mourning' in honor of the 41st President, with federal government agencies closing on that day.

That includes the Post Office, which in a written statement said it would suspend delivery and close all branches on Wednesday "Out of respect" for Bush's "vast contributions to our country during his lifetime".

"Limited' package delivery will still happen on Wednesday.

...Does this seem unusual to you?

Can you remember the Post Office closing for any other non-holiday?
