I am once again writing to you, and requesting that you have a stamp made in honor of
Commander Charles “Chick” Parsons.
I have been pursing this request since 1996.
I no longer have to go into details as to why this WWII hero is deserving of a stamp, as

Another suggestion is that a commemorative stamp with Chick and the submarine USS
Stingray that played an important part in the liberation of the Philippines, be on one
stamp, thus satisfying all those veteran submariners, and “Chick” followers..
There are still some veterans of WWII that would love to see this stamp issued, but time
is marching on, and we veterans are gradually passing on.
Thanks for your consideration, and we all hope that this stamp will be issued.
