The photograph on this stamp, taken by John W. Alli of Catonsville, Md., shows the statues at the Korean War Veterans Memorial shrouded in heavy snow. Alli took this photograph just before dawn during a snowstorm in Washington, D.C., in January 1996. He intended the photograph to be a retirement gift for his father, William, who is a Korean War veteran. Richard Sheaff of Scottsdale, Ariz., designed the stamp.
