Every year the Israel Ministry of Defence sends messages to the families of soldiers who fell in Israel's wars. These letters go out on Memorial Day and carry a special Memorial Day stamp.

This year's Memorial Day and Independence Day are both of particular significance because it is Israel's 40th year of Independence.

The Hebrew letter "Mem" (M) which is one of the letters that form the Hebrew year (5748), which is what the stamp shows, means 40 in the group of Hebrew figures.

In addition to this stamp the Philatelic Service is also issuing a Souvenir Sheet which includes the stamp and the colourful regimental emblems of the Israel Defence Forces.

The State of Israel, which longs for peace shows its appreciation in this way, on this Independence Day, to the Army and Security Forces who guard the State at all times.
