Honor the Fallen ~ Beirut Stamp

A long and ongoing attempt is being made by surviviors and families of the fallen to get a commemorative stamp to honor those lost in Beirut. To date, the Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee has rejected it for the insane reasons: not positive, not pretty, and, my personal favorite: "Beirut did not mean that much to American History, and not enough people were killed".

YOU can help by sending a postcard to the USPS Citizens Advisory Committee letting them know how you feel about the Beirut Stamp Petition.

Send your postcard to:

Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee
Stamp Development
US Postal Service
1735 North Lynn Street Room 5013
Arlington VA 22209-6432

It is two years away from the 25th Anniversary of this event. It would be memorable to have this stamp and so important the survivors and the families of the victims to have this important event remembered, and other Americans are reminded of the cost of freedom.

Please help.

For more information go to the Beirut Stamp Intiitative site.
This evening they are having a Memorial Walk through Washington, DC.
