affixes stamps to each cover.
The USS New Mexico Committee designed and produced a special cachet cover that features a photo of the submarine underway, and the commemorative postage stamp. It also features an insert with information about the Navy's 6th Virginia-class submarine and a special USPS-approved cancellation postmark.
The cachet envelopes were then overnighted to the Chief of the Boat, ETCS Eric Murphy who took them to sea.
The Commanding Officer, CDR George Perez, signed each cover, thereby certifying that each has been carried beneath the sea aboard USS New Mexico.
