    The U.S. Postal Service will issue a U.S. Coast Guard forever stamp in 2015. The stamp features a MH-65 Dolphin helicopter and the USCGC Eagle.

    Next year, 2015, will mark the 225th anniversary of the Aug. 4, 1790, creation of the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service (later renamed the U.S. Coast Guard) and the 100th anniversary of the reorganization that formed the Coast Guard we know today (in 1915).

    It's a really attractive stamp. It's been a long time coming. The last Coast Guard related stamp was from the 1940s.
