This illustration of a visit to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial offers a poignant reminder of the powerful reactions that stamps can inspire. Shortly after this stamp was issued, the brother of a man whose name appears just near the veteran’s hand contacted the Postal Service; he and his family had been deeply touched by the discovery.
