Commemorative Postmark for Pearl Harbor

To my fellow postal enthusiasts and history nerds, the West Point post office in New York is offering a commemorative cancellation for the 70th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack. The pictoral cancellation will feature a World War II helmet and rifle with bayonet affixed. To get your own (or to send some history snail mail love to a friend) just mail your self-addressed and stamped envelopes inside an envelope addressed to:

West Point Post Office
634 Swift Road
West Point, NY 10996

Be sure to include a note requesting the commemorative cancellation, and a note of thanks to the postal workers while you’re at it!

The envelopes will be cancelled and mailed on the 7th of December.
