The furriest members of the armed forces will grace the U.S. Postal Service’s newest stamps to be released Thursday.

The new red, white and blue stamps featuring military working dogs were designed to “honor the nation’s brave and loyal canines,” according to a Postal Service statement released last week.

The stamps will feature artist renderings of four breeds commonly used as military working dogs: German shepherd, Dutch shepherd, Labrador retriever and Belgian Malinois, according to an image of the stamps.
