The U.S. Postal Service will issue special Medal of Honor stamps on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
According to the postal service, the stamps will be introduced in a new format, the prestige folio. Each "Medal of Honor: World War II" prestige folio contains 20 forever stamps, which are always equal in value to the current first-class stamp.
The first side of the four-page design highlights 12 photographs of the last living recipients of the Medal of Honor from World War II. The photographs surround two forever stamps. One stamp features a photograph of the Navy version of the Medal of Honor; the other stamp features a photograph of the Army version of the Medal of Honor.
The two center pages list the names of all 464 recipients of the Medal of Honor from World War II. The remaining 18 stamps are located on the back page.
Three Medal of Honor recipients have previously appeared on stamps:
