New postal service stamp honors first responders

The U.S. Postal Service is unveiling a new stamp honoring first responders.

The new Forever stamp will be available starting later this year. It features a firefighter, an EMS worker, and a police officer all racing into action.

Creators say the dark background and smoke are meant to depict the range of situations that first responders face every day. It was designed signed by artist Brian Stauffer, art director and designer Antonio Alcalá and designer Ricky Altizer.

The postal service hopes the new stamp will bring attention to the skill, dedication and uncommon bravery of our nation's first responders.
