USPS features military service dogs on new stamps


Associated Press - February 6, 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The United States Postal Service has revealed several new stamp designs to honor the nation's military service dogs.

The new Forever Stamps feature images of a German shepherd, Labrador retriever, Belgian Malinois (MELON – WAH) or Dutch shepherd. All of these breeds commonly serve in the United States Armed Forces.

USPS says the illustrations are in red, white and blue "to represent the American flag and patriotism." The stamps were created by Los Angeles-based DNKG Studios.

USPS says the stamps will be released in 2019, but have not announced the official date yet.

The postal service has introduced more than a dozen stamps for 2019, several with military themes.

In October of last year, the USPS announced another postage rate increase.  The First Class Mail letter rate for postage increased by five cents to $0.55 from $0.50, effective January 27, 2019.  Each additional ounce for a First Class Mail letter will cost an extra $0.15 - a decrease from $0.21 in 2018.
