Reserve physician designs award-winning, historical postage stamp
The stamp design, created by Lt. Col. (Dr.) Arunas Banionis, a 446th Aerospace Medicine Squadron flight surgeon, placed first in the Lithuanian Post Postage Stamps Design Contest in May. The design was inspired by an old photo of Steponas Darius and Stasys Girenas, two Lithuanian pilots who gained U.S. citizenship during the early 20th Century. The design was created to mark the 80th Anniversary of the Flight of Darius and Girenas, the first transatlantic flight flown by Lithuanian-born pilots.
