The Postal Service is doing something a little different by issuing a second United States Air Mail Forever stamp only a few months after the first. This unusual move helps continue the celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Air Mail.
As you may recall, a blue version of this same stamp was dedicated on May 1 at the National Postal Museum in Washington, DC. That stamp paid tribute to the pioneering spirit of the brave pilots and the beginning of this historic service. The second stamp—this time printed in red—commemorates the beginning of airmail delivery through the U.S. Post Office Department on Aug. 12, 1918.
