Long Description:
Dale Justus was working at the Edmond, OK Post Office the day that postal carrier Patrick Sherrill brought in three guns in his mail bag and killed fourteen of his co-workers and seriously injured six others. This personal account of the massacre is well-written and informative. Dale Justus recounts the horrific event he witnessed, provides a background on his co-workers who were affected by this tragedy, and details the government's response to the event that forever changed the U.S. Postal Service.

A gorgeous memorial fountain was placed at the Edmond Post Office to honor those killed there on August 20, 1986. Names of the victims are on plaques around the fountain whose focal point is a sculpture of a man and woman with a yellow ribbon.
