On September 17, 2011, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued a new Souvenir Sheet commemorating the 20th Anniversary of the Marshall Islands' admission to the United Nations. Change has been a way of life for the people of the Republic of the Marshall Islands. Held for three decades by Japan, the islands were liberated by U.S. forces in World War II, and designated a United Nations Trust Territory in 1947. The first of many important steps towards independence was taken in 1979, when the Marshallese adopted a constitution. In 1982, the people signed an agreement, called the Compact of Free Association, which envisioned complete self-government. The compact came into force when the Trust Territory was dissolved in 1986 and the Marshall Islands became independent. In 1991, the Republic of the Marshall Islands was admitted as a member to the United Nations. This special "stamp-within-a-stamp" issue celebrates the 20th Anniversary of that historic admission.
