One of the nation’s most revered entertainers and humanitarians was immortalized by the Postal Service when it dedicated the 44-cent Bob Hope First-Class commemorative stamp on the flight deck of the USS Midway, where “G.I. Bob” twice entertained service men and women during his nearly six-decade commitment to boosting military morale.
They may purchase new stamps at their local Post Office™, at The Postal Store® website at www.usps.com/shop, or by calling 800.STAMP.24. They should affix the stamps to envelopes of their choice, address the envelopes to themselves or others, and place them in a larger envelope addressed to: Bob Hope Stamp Postmaster, PO Box 85530, San Diego, CA 92186-5530.
After applying the first-day-of-issue postmark, the Postal Service will return the envelopes through the mail. There is no charge for the postmark. All orders must be postmarked by July 30, 2009.
