Congress has designated March 25 as National Medal of Honor Day and the Postal Service will salute those who received the honor by dedicating the Vietnam War Medal of Honor Forever Stamps on Memorial Day. This will be the third series of stamps in as many years to honor those who distinguished themselves through “conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty.”
Of the more than 3 million Americans who served in Vietnam, 258 were awarded the Medal of Honor. Of that, more than 6 out of 10 received the honor posthumously. Their names are among the 58,000 individuals inscribed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, DC where the event will take place May 25.
The Postal Service will dedicate the Limited Edition Vietnam War Medal of Honor Prestige Folio Forever stamps during a 1 p.m. Memorial Day ceremony, hosted by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, and the National Park Service. The event is free and open to the public. Individuals are encouraged to raise awareness of the event through social media: #MedalofHonor.
