The late President George H.W. Bush is being honored with his own forever stamp.

The stamp includes a portrait of Bush painted by award winning artist Michael J. Deas.

It is based on a 1997 photograph by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders.

The first day of issue ceremony takes place on his birthday, June 12, at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station, Texas.
