Military History Society

The Military Postal History Society wants you!

Founded in 1937 as the War Cover Club, American Philatelic Society Unit #19, the original club focused largely on the postal history of the American Expeditionary Forces in World War I.

The group changed its name in 1991 to better reflect the wide variety of collecting interests of its members. Today the Society promotes the study of the postal aspects of all wars and military actions of all nations.

Members' interests include soldier campaign covers, patriotics, prisoner-of-war mail, naval mail, occupation and internment covers, picture postcards of a military nature, camp cancels, field post offices, propaganda labels and leaflets, V-mail, censored mail and similar related material.

The Society publishes a quarterly journal, Military Postal History Society Bulletin, as well as separate books including an APO directory.
