Among the new postage stamps to be released in 2019 is a set of Forever Stamps honoring “the nations brave and loyal military working dogs” according to a statement released by the United States Postal Service. The book of 20 stamps has images of the four most common breeds that work for the military: Belgian Malinois, Labrador Retriever, Dutch Shepherd and German Shepherd.
Each dog sits or stands on a white star with either a blue background or a red one. The red, white and blue represent the flag of the United States and patriotism. The dogs all look alert with a directed gaze at something in the distance. They are wearing harnesses typical of working dogs.
