Photo of Lt Col Urban
I would like to obtain permission to use the photograph of Lt Col Matt L. Urban, the 2d of 2 US most decorated heroes of WW II in the designing of a Zazzle Custom Stamp to honor his intrepid service. Zazzle is a commercial firm specializing in producing such items and is licensed by the USPS since the items are to be used for postage.

This could be a precursor to the stamp issued by the USPS. I only do this for the pleasure of being able to promote the stamp, since I am a veteran of W W II. If a stamp is issued by the USPS it will only show the photo, and the Zazzle Custom Stamp will furnish basic information, such as "Polish American US Army Lt Col Matt L. Urban, 2d of 2 US most decorated WW II heroes, Medal of Honor Seven Purple Hearts". There is limited space on the Zazzle Custom Stamp for description.
This stamp is then sold on the web in a special web site, I do not make any money from this effort, but a small commission would be paid to the sponsor, if you sponsor it, I would need your web site URL which would be listed on the stamp.

The Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee will shortly be reconsidering recommending the stamp to the Postmaster General, after having been recommended twice by him since their recommendation is required even though he recommended it. It appears that the stamp may be considered for issuance in 2012, unless there is an exception and the stamp is recommended for this year or 2011.

I have a long history of attempts to have the USPS issue a commemorative stamp honoring Lt Col Urban, culminating in that current status. Please send me your email address and I will send you a copy. Thanks.

Are you the originator of the Matt Urban entry? I have some more information if you'd like to add it!
