1995 WWII

1995 WWII "1945:VICTORY AT LAST" #2981 Plate Block of 10 x 32 cents US Postage Stamps - In 1995 the USPS issued the fifth and final installment of the World War II series commemorating the 50th anniversary of the war's final year. Titled "1945: Victory at Last," these 10 stamps chronicle the events leading to Germany's surrender, the Japanese surrender, and ultimately the Allied victory. Nearly 300,000 American service personnel lost their lives between 1941 and 1945. President Clinton attended the dedication of these stamps on September 2, 1995, in Honolulu, Hawaii. The ceremony was held on the aircraft carrier the USS Carl Vinson, with the USS Arizona Memorial in view. In 1991, the USS Arizona was featured on the first series of World War II stamps on the "Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941" stamp. At the dedication, Postmaster General Marvin Runyon said, "Nearly 300,000 American servicemen and women paid the ultimate price between 1941 and 1945. The World War II stamp series is a fitting tribute to all who served our country." ( World War II series )
