Scout Postal Cancellation Available!
- In honor of Scouting, the United States Postal Service is offering a special cancellation to commemorate the 5th Future Leaders Day, held On the Military Installation of Fort Knox, the Home the Gold Vault ! Those interested in Boy Scout or Girl Scout Cancellations will want this special cancellation, featuring the BSA, GSUSA, CSA and Venture Logo, combined inside of the traditional Armor patch used by Fort Knox.
People attending Future Leaders Day may obtain the cancellation in person at the special temporary Post Office station established at the event site. Those who cannot attend the event, but who wish to obtain the cancellation, may submit a mail order request. Cancellations are available only for 05 AUG 06, and requests must be
postmarked no later than 06 SEP 06. The Post office will also be operating ON SITE at the event, from a mobile, emergency post office (providing its not being used for a local disaster) if you desire to get your cancellation at the event. They will be offering most postal operations, so Future Leaders Day will have its own post office that day! More info on the event is available at http://www.knoxscouting.org/FLD/FLDindex.htm
All requests must include a stamped envelope or postcard bearing at least the minimum First-Class Mail postage. Items submitted for cancellation may not include postage issued after the date of the requested cancellation. Such items will be returned unserviced. Customers wishing to obtain a cancellation should affix stamps to any envelope or postcard of their choice, address the envelope or postcard to themselves or others, insert a card of postcard thickness in envelopes for sturdiness, and tuck in the flap. Place the envelope or postcard in a larger envelope and address it to:
Future Leaders Day
PO BOX 9998
FT KNOX KY 40121-9998
People can also send stamped envelopes and postcards without addresses for cancellation, as long as they supply a larger envelope with adequate postage and their return address. After applying the cancellation, the Postal Service returns the items (with or without addresses) under addressed protective cover.
P.O. Box 41
Ft Knox KY 40121-0041

"The goodness of a person and of the society he or she lives in often comes down to very simple things and words found in the Scout Law. Every society depends on trust and loyalty, on courtesy and kindness, on bravery and reverence. These are the values of Scouting, and these are the values of Americans."
President George W. Bush
