As protective service workers, firefighters, police officers, veterans, and other Americans put their lives on the line each and every day. The 1999 “Honoring Those Who Served” postage stamp, issued by the United States Postal Service, remembers the real-life heroes who gave their lives while serving their country and its citizens.
Volunteer firefighters are active in nearly every community across the U.S. According to information gathered by the National Fire Data Center, 73 percent of fire departments are made up of all volunteers, which represents over 800,000 firefighters. A department responds to a fire every 18 seconds in this country. Firefighters also respond to calls for medical aid, smoke scares, low-hanging wires, and bomb removal.
There are more than 25 million American veterans, which equals nearly one in every 10 adults. The acts of selfless service made by these men and women have had a profound impact in the U.S. and around the world.
The “Honoring Those Who Served” postage stamp was unveiled on Capitol Hill just months after the deaths of detective John Gibson and police officer Jacob Chestnut. They lost their lives while protecting members of Congress, government employees, and Capitol visitors from a gunman in July of 1998.
