This stamp, along with unique envelopes called cachets, will be offered during a special event for collectors, historians, and supporters of our military.

War Memorial Veterans Building
There are eight different themes about America’s participation in World War One: U.S. Army, U.S. Navy/Coast Guard, U.S. Air Service, US Marine Corps, U.S. Women, African-Americans, U.S. Animals, and the War Memorial.  Each cachet shows a collage of images including period posters and photos of men and women. Each cachet also tells a story about the role they played in helping to win the war. Take a look at them:
