The U.S. Postal Service today issued the second of an annual series of Forever stamps that pay tribute to one of the most searing, traumatic and consequential events in our nation’s history: the American Civil War.
“These stamps help us pause to remember a period in our history that had a profound impact on our country for many years to come,” said Dean Granholm, vice president, Delivery and Post Office Operations.

The U.S. Navy arrived to celebrate the inaugural Los Angeles Navy Week 2011 when USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72), USS Princeton (CG 59), USS Chafee (DDG 90), and USS Champion (MCM 4) pulled into the earlier Port of Los Angeles this week.
