Semipostal stamp to honor Medal of Honor recipient, raise money for veterans and their families | Connecting Vets Radio

Exactly on the 52nd anniversary of Langhorn’s death in Pleiku Province, Vietnam, Congressman Lee Zaldin has introduced a legislation of semipostal stamp honoring Riverhead Medal of Honor recipient PFC Garfield Langhorn. The stamp is sold at a premium price, wherein the proceeds will be used to support low-income war veterans’ families through the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program in the Department of Veterans Affairs. In 1969 PFC Garfield M. Langhorn threw himself on grenade that landed just a few feet away from his injured comrades, absorbing the blast and saving the other soldiers.
