The National Park Service announced today that Fort Sumter National Monument has been selected for the 2011 national Passport To Your National Parks commemorative stamp. Each year, Eastern National holds a photo contest for National Park Service employees and Volunteers-In-Parks (VIPs) to select ten images—one national and nine regional—for the collectible stamp set. Park Ranger Carlin Timmons submitted the winning photo. Eastern National is a nonprofit cooperating association of the National Park Service.
