There are many ways we honor people, places and things. One of the ways is through United States postage stamps. This time they are honoring our canine heroes. If you love dogs as much as I do, you are going to love these new stamps that the United State Postal Service (USPS) is unveiling. According to News 10 ABC, the USPS will release stamps that honor military dogs.

On the stamps will be Labrador Retrievers, Belgian Malinois, Dutch Shepards, and German Shepherds. These are the breeds that are used in the armed forces. Military dogs have been working with soldiers since World War I and there are still over two thousand dogs that work with soldiers today. They work closely with soldiers helping with searching and rescuing.

The USPS hasn't said exactly when these military dog stamps will be released, but they will be part of the 2019 collection. We will see them sometime this year.
