U.S. #1421 was issued in conjunction with U.S. #1422, the POW and MIA stamp. A tribute to American servicemen, these two stamps were issued attached. The Disabled American Veterans stamp honors servicemen living and dead, and celebrates the organization, which serves approximately 1.5 million disabled veterans and their families. The Prisoners of War and Missing in Action stamp honors those Americans who are currently prisoners of war or missing, and raises awareness for the need for the identification and release of soldiers still in Vietnam.
