Background:  

With the release of the O Beautiful Forever stamps, the U.S. Postal Service commemorates the beauty and majesty of the United States through 20 images that correspond with the lyrics of one of the nation’s most beloved songs, “America the Beautiful.” Each of the stamps features a photograph that helps illustrate one of five phrases from the song’s first verse: “Spacious Skies” (top row), “Waves of Grain” (second row), “Mountain Majesties” (third row), “The Fruited Plain” (fourth row), and “Sea to Shining Sea” (bottom row). Details of the locations — ranging from Maine to Hawaii — will be announced later.

 

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
