DULUTH, Minn. – A Duluth woman whose letter mailed to her Army son in Iraq came back to her stamped “DECEASED” when the soldier wasn’t dead has received a formal apology from the U.S. Post Office, more than six years after the incident.

Joan Najbar received the return letter in October 2006. The formal apology from the U.S. Postal Service arrived last week.
