The Postal Service dedicated the stamps at a ceremony Monday at the World Stamp Show-NY. The once-a-decade stamp show is happening in New York City.

Officially titled “Honoring Extraordinary Heroism: The Service Cross Medals,” the new stamps show the four different decorations. They are the Distinguished Service Cross awarded to members of the Army, the Navy Cross, the Air Force Cross and the Coast Guard Cross.

They are awarded for extraordinary heroism.
