The Medal of Honor: Vietnam War stamp sheet will feature photos of 48 living medal recipients, the Postal Service announced May 20.

The names of individuals who received the medal for their service during the war will also be listed on the sheet, which will be modeled after the recent World War II and Korean War Medal of Honor stamp folios.

Almost a dozen medal recipients from the Vietnam War are slated to participate in the Memorial Day dedication of the stamps.

Postal Service employees who served in the military during the war are also invited to attend.

The ceremony, which is free and open to the public, will be held Monday, May 25, from 1-2 p.m. at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC.
