Issue Date: July 4, 2012
On July 4, 2011, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issues ten new stamps commemorating America's involvement in World War II during
1942. This special issue is the second in a five-year series. The 2012 World War II 70th Anniversary: 1942 Issue commemorates ten key events and important aspects of the year 1942 relating to
World War II: the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo, which boosted American morale; the rationing effort in the United States, which helped curb inflation; the Battle of the Coral Sea, the first battle
where neither naval opponent came within sight of the other; the Japanese invasions of Corregidor and later the Aleutian Islands; the American codebreaking effort which helped win the Battle of
Midway and turn the tide of war in the Pacific; the American victory at Midway despite the loss of the carrier Yorktown; the entrance of women into industry to help the war effort; the battle
for the Solomon Islands; and the Allied invasion of North Africa.
