The Four Chaplain’s Postage Stamp

In 1948, the United States Postal Service issued a three cents stamp in honor of the Four Chaplains (pictured above). In 2014, the Chapel of the Four Chaplains requested in writing to the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee (CSAC) that the United States Postal Service reissue this stamp, but this request was denied.
