STAMFORD - Today marks Stamford postal carrier Jerry Fortin's 50th year on the job.

Fortin started the job when he was just 18 years old back in 1963. He has had the same delivery route for the past 22 years. The veteran mailman says his co-workers and customers make the job worth the tough times that the post office is going through.

Fortin plans on retiring sometime in the near future. But he says that until then, nothing will stop him from making his deliveries.
