    Former President George H.W. Bush will be honored with a commemorative "forever stamp," the U.S. Postal Service announced Saturday.

    The stamp will feature a portrait of Bush painted by artist Michael J. Deas, based on a 1997 photo taken by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, according to the USPS.
