The Postal Service announced today that a postage stamp honoring Ronald Reagan will be issued next year.
Postal policy is to honor prominent Americans with a stamp no sooner than ten years after their death, except for former presidents. The agency says former presidents can be honored on their first birth anniversary following death. Reagan was born
February sixth, 1911, and died June fifth.
In announcing the Reagan stamp, Postmaster General John Potter called the former president “a man of diverse talents.” The design of the stamp hasn´t been completed.
