About the Military Postal History Society

This Society promotes the study of the postal aspects of all wars and military actions of all nations. Our members' interests include soldier campaign covers, patriotics, prisoner-of-war mail, naval mail, occupation and internment covers, picture postcards of a military nature, camp cancels, field post offices, propaganda labels and leaflets, V-mail, censored mail and similar related material.

Introducing Our New Editing Team

We are proud to introduce our new co-editors of the Bulletin: Fred Baumann and Dann Mayo. Please take a look at the bio information for our new MPHS editing team, as well as their (important) contact information.

In the meantime, note that our major problem to start is we have absolutely no material. Whatever Tom had is on Tom's computer or in his study.  We have contacted the family to obtain this material, but do not yet know if or when we will recover it. If you sent Tom anything last year for use in the Bulletin, please email or mail it to one of us as soon as you can.

At this time, it is best to send material to:

Fred Baumann 2903 Jacksonville Rd, Bellefonte PA 16823


Featured Items

New Presentation: We are proud to add Harold Krische's presentation to our website. Both Harold and Ravi Vora presented at the Blount Symposium at the National Postal Museum in 2018. Both presentations can be viewed by going to the MPHS Presentations web page.

We are again adding new military-themed holiday cards to our extensive online exhibit. We have more than 600 images available now.
