Stamp Scoop

Each month the USPS highlights a new stamp release in its monthly online column Stamp Scoop.Together with an image of the stamp there is an article formatted like a newspaper column about the stamp subject.

This month's article on the site features the new Medal of Honor stamps.

According Stamp Scoop only one US president is a Medal of Honor recipient (they are not called 'winners,' it's not a contest)... President Theodore Roosevelt was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his bravery during the Spanish American War in 1898 by President Clinton in 2001.
