We are awed by the men and women who serve this country. The latest stamp in our countdown honors the service of those who received the Purple Heart.
#15 -Purple Heart Stamp (2003)
First issued as a 37-cent First-Class stamp in 2003, this new Forever Stamp differs from the 2011 Forever Stamp design displaying a slightly larger image of the Medal on a pure white background.
“The Postal Service salutes America’s veterans for their selfless sacrifice in defending our great nation,” said Stamp Service Manager Stephen Kearney. “We hope Americans will buy and use these Forever stamps when corresponding with loved ones and friends to honor these courageous men and women, who in many cases gave the ultimate sacrifice.”Tags: Postal Service, Purple Heart, stamp, stamp collecting month, USPS, veterans
