Issue Date: September 2, 2010

No Picture Available

On September 2, 2010, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued 15 new stamps celebrating famous World War II warships of the South Pacific. The incredible battles waged in the Pacific Theater during World War II were often fought with the help of Allied warships, many of them named in honor of U.S. states. The last battleship completed by the United States during World War II was the U.S.S. Missouri, commissioned on June 11, 1944. The following year, the Missouri supported the U.S.S. Lexington as the group launched the first air strikes against Japan since General Doolittle's daring raid in 1942. The Missouri later played an important role during the invasion of Iwo Jima, among other campaigns. In Tokyo Harbor, on September 2, 1945, Japan signed the Articles of Surrender aboard the deck of the U.S.S. Missouri, formally ending World War II in the Pacific.
