The 60th Anniversary of the Republic of Korea Marine Corps

Date of Issue : 15 Apr 2009

The Republic of Korea Marine Corps was established in 1949 from the need to implement “dual land-and-water operations” due to the geographic characteristics of the Korean peninsula, with three sides of the nation surrounded by the sea. The Marine Corps has fought for its fatherland and maintained peace during the Korean War, Vietnam War, etc. During the past 60 years, it has also dispatched to Iraq, Afghanistan, Georgia, India, Pakistan, Djibouti, etc.

The stamp features the Marine Corps engaged in a coordinated landing operation with the Korea Amphibious Armored Vehicle (KAAV), Dokdoham (Landing Platform Helicopter) and helicopters. Reflecting the symbol of the Marine Corps, the octagonal hat, the new stamp is issued as an octagon-shaped stamp.

This octagon-shaped stamp is so special and colourful. I really like it.
