On this Sunday afternoon, I thought it a perfect time for sharing about the upcoming USPS Forever Stamp Honoring First Responders. This next week, on Tuesday, will be September 11. In the midst of all the talk of a potential hurricane coming this way to the East Coast, specifically to the Carolinas, I am pausing to make sure we know about this stamp.

First, the stamp will be available nationwide on September 13, 2018. In the meantime, it is available for Pre-ordering USPS Forever Stamp Honoring First Responders.

Furthermore, I’m including this from the August, 2nd USPS Stamp Announcement.

“With this stamp, the U.S. Postal Service recognizes the men and women — firefighters, law enforcement officers, and emergency medical service professionals — who respond to critical situations with skill, dedication, and uncommon bravery.

First responders are found throughout society, from small townships to the federal government, and their ranks often include a wide range of law enforcement professionals and public safety personnel.

The digital illustration on this stamp is a symbolic scene that shows three first responders in profile as they race into action.”

In addition, the format for the stamp comes on a pane of 20 stamps pressure-sensitive for $10.00.

Thank you for joining me today. I’m off to go do some storm preparations around the house! 

 Anchors Aweigh,
