US Postal Service Honors Military Dogs With New Stamps
Military dogs are incredible creatures who put their lives on the line to serve their country. That’s why it’s so great that they are now being honored by the US Postal Service with a brand new stamp collection!
The stamps are this year’s “forever” collection, and they are meant to honor the “nation’s brave and loyal military working dogs.” The stamps have already become incredibly popular because of just how beautiful their design is.
Collectors everywhere are sure to want these stamps, as will military veterans and dog lovers. The stamps are selling quickly, so act fast if you want one!
All of the stamps have a red, white, or blue background with a star on it, and they include the most common military dogs. The dogs on the stamps are German shepherds, Dutch shepherds, Labrador retrievers, and Belgian Malinois. In addition, each of the dogs are pictured wearing their work harness.
“As a military veteran and former law enforcement officer, I have the greatest appreciation for these animals and the service they provide,” said David C. Williams, vice chairman of the U.S. Postal Service Board of Governors. “Today, these dogs are born and raised to serve alongside soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen and women, and members of the Coast Guard. They are heroes deserving of our respect and gratitude.”
“The red, white and blue color scheme represents the American flag and the patriotism displayed by military working dogs,” the postal service added.
