New postmarks honor and commend U.S. veterans
Postmark Pursuit by Molly Goad
Several organizations have sponsored pictorial postmarks to honor the brave men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
The U.S. Postal Service is offering the Nov. 11 Henderson, Nev., American flag postmark pictured nearby. Henderson recently added five names to its Veterans Memorial Wall during the annual Veterans Day festivities.
The Barry-Hoof American Legion released a Napoleon, N.D., postmark for veterans on Nov. 7. The American Legion is honoring 100 years of serving veterans, military members and their families.
The Soldiers Memorial Museum Historical Society in St. Louis, Mo., is sponsoring a cancel for the 40th anniversary of the Iran hostage crisis and the organization’s 36th annual Veterans Day celebration.
