Need stamps? Buy them on August 1, 2019 because that's when the new Forever stamps honoring the bravery and loyalty of the military working dogs are released.
The blocks of four stamps feature the following breeds: German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever, Belgian Malinois, and Dutch Shepherd. These four breeds are the most common four-legged members of the Armed Forces.
“The stylized digital illustrations are in red, white, blue and gold to represent the American flag and patriotism,” the Postal Service explains. “The art was created by DKNG Studios. Art director Greg Breeding designed the stamps.”

Hopefully, this new set of stamps is one step in the right direction towards honoring the most innocent combat veterans in the Armed Forces.
