The Army commemorative stamp is printed in a khaki color, arranged horizontally, and the design consists of a procession of United States troops passing by the Arc de Triomphe in Paris with an escort of six large bombers overhead. In small squares in each of the upper corners appears the coat of arms of the United States. Denomination numerals enclosed in circles occupy corresponding positions in the lower corners. Connecting vertical panels form the right and left borders of the stamp, and in the left panel appear the words, "U.S. Army," and in the right, "U.S. Postage," reading downward.
This stamp was first placed on sale September 28,1945, in Washington, D.C.
