CHICAGO — The U.S.  Postal Service has created a stamp paying tribute to first responders.

The  Honoring First Responders Forever stamp recognizes their bravery, skill and dedication.

The stamp is dedicated to firefighters, law enforcement officers and emergency medical responders.

It’s available for purchase at the post office and online.
