Here is the reception for those involved with the mission,held at Fort McNair in Washington D.C. and those involved with the
group, "No Greater Love", the organization that planned the affair this day.
The gentleman standing with his back to us in the green Army coat, is retired General Vaught, the man in charge in Washington,
that got all the people and forces together to accomplish the mission. He is holding a video camera in front of him, filming
the unvieling of a new stamp, entitled, "Hostages Come Home", which the Post Office released as a part of their
'Celebrate the Century' series. This stamp is in the 1980's section, and only comes with all the others, you cannot get it
alone. (...sigh) and the Post Office I contacted searched through their records, and they have not heard of it yet.
Here in this photo, several former Hostages stand on the right hand side of the unvieled stamp. I cannot remember all the
names, but from left to right, they are: Dick Morehead, Consul General; unknown; Jimmy Lopez, fomer Marine Security Guard,
later became a Marine Commisioned officer; and another unknown.
There were more in line, but they did not make the
photo. I did get to meet Barry Rosen, also, he is still further to the right in this photo.
