Polish-American group fights for stamp honoring WWII hero Matt Urban





World War II hero Audie Murphy got his own U.S. postage stamp. So did Elvis Presley, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. Buffalo’s most decorated war veteran, the late Matt L. Urban, should get a stamp, too, according to organizers of a nationwide petition drive.

The Polish American Congress recently renewed its petition drive and other efforts to convince the U.S. Postal Service to honor Urban with a stamp.

The organization argues that Urban and Murphy — both U.S. Army veterans from World War II — are the two most decorated veterans from that war. Murphy’s face was put on a stamp in 2001, and the group wants Urban to receive the same honor.
