The much-anticipated postage stamp collection which honors U.S. military dogs was just released.

“The U.S. Postal Service honors the nation’s brave and loyal military working dogs,” officials announced online. “Each of the four stamps features a stylized geometric digital illustration of one of four of the canine breeds – German shepherd, Labrador retriever, Belgian Malinois, and Dutch shepherd – that commonly serve in America’s armed forces.”

According to CNN, dogs have served in the U.S. military since World War I, and an estimated 2,300 military working dogs serve on U.S. bases worldwide.


“The dogs perform dangerous tasks alongside servicemembers, often using their noses and convenient sizes for searches and rescues,” CNN wrote.
