Postal Service to Dedicate WWI: Turning the Tide Commemorative Forever Stamp on July 27
Picture of one of the WWI stamps:

Background: World War I was a devastating four-year global conflict (1914-1918) that reshaped the map of Europe. The United States remained neutral in the war until April 1917, when the nation declared war on Germany and entered on the side of the Allies — Britain, France and Russia.

The American Expeditionary Force, which ultimately grew to nearly 5 million troops, did not see major action until the spring of 1918. Then, in six months of intense combat, American troops played an indispensable role in turning the tide of war in favor of the Allies.

The Postal Service pays tribute to the sacrifice of these and countless other Americans—including millions of supporters on the home front — who experienced the seminal conflict of the 20th century.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
