Postal Service Honors ‘Brave And Loyal’ Military Working Dogs With Stunning New Forever Stamps Who already got theirs?!
The United States Postal Service has revealed several additional stamps for the 2019 Stamp Program. A guaranteed favorite of these will be a new set of Forever stamps honoring “the nation’s brave and loyal military working dogs.”
“Each block of four stamps features one stamp of each of the following breeds — German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever, Belgian Malinois and Dutch Shepherd — that commonly serve in America’s armed forces,” a press release stated. “The background of each stamp features a detail of a white star. A star appears in the center of each block. The stylized digital illustrations are in red, white, blue and gold to represent the American flag and patriotism.”
The Postal Service has also revealed four other stamp subjects for the 2019 Stamp Program, including a star ribbon, designs from artist Ellsworth Kelly, locomotives from the transcontinental railroad and a painting of tennis player Maureen Connolly Brinker.
More details on dates and locations for the first-day-of-issue ceremonies are soon to be released. I’ll race you to the post office! At a within-limit-speed of course … while wearing my seatbelt.
