USPS announces new forever stamp honoring late Pres. Bush

Posted: Updated:

WSIL -- The United States Postal Service announced that it is issuing a new commemorative stamp honoring the late President George H. W. Bush.

The stamp, which is now available for pre-order, will be available for delivery following a first-day-of-issue ceremony, which will be held on Bush's birthday, June 12, at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum.

The stamp was designed by Phil Jordan and is the latest addition to its "Forever" collection, according to a USPS announcement. It is a portrait of Bush painted by artist Michael J. Deas based on a 1997 photograph taken by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders.

George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st president of the United States, died at age 94 on November 30, 2018. He was laid to rest next to his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush and his daughter Robin at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station, Texas.
