The Untold Stories of WWII: The Power of the Post Office

Amidst the trials of World War II, few delve into the distinctive challenges that the wartime era posed for the United States Post Office Department.

During the war, Americans saw their troops scattered across six different continents. Mail had to travel from major theaters of operation in Europe and the Pacific to such far-flung locations as the Aleutian and Galapagos Islands. Censorship and security were essential to American safety, but soldiers also expected their mail would be delivered in a timely fashion.

At the center of the Post Office Department’s war effort was an unassuming little red postage stamp. With a face value of 6 cents, issued in June of 1941, the stamp depicted a twin-engine transport plane that was cobbled together from various real-world aircrafts including the Douglas DC-3, Lockheed Electra, and Beechcraft Model 18. Over the next four years, billions of these stamps would be used to carry mail from soldiers around the globe. Using the letters and envelopes that survived, philatelists (people who study or collect postage stamps) can preserve and retell some of the most incredible unsung stories of World War II.

We at the National Museum of the Pacific War invite you to join Charles Epting, Vice President of Siegel Auctions, as he presents just a few of the stories he has uncovered through studying these personal relics of the past.

Our first ever After Hours Webinar takes place Thursday, March 14th, from 6PM-7PM.
