Many Postal Administrations of Europe and other countries have scheduled special stamps on this theme for this year. Here are some forthcoming issues to come out soon this year. Also see a pair of stamps from Korea on Astronomy theme issued on 15 January 2009 featuring the mysterious look of the universe. Out of the stamps shown here the stamp of Liechtenstein is most beautiful. The stamp to be issued by Aland is also very nice.

You have done a good job. When did you start your club.

I will be starting a Military History Stamp club here in the USA in 2010.

Its a great way to educate children about the history of the USA.
