An interesting group of twelve Nicaraguan stamps issued to commemorate the Nicaragua Military Academy (NMA) also depicts various USMA graduates, as follows: Fred T. Cruse of Kentucky, class of 1907, the second superintendent of the NMA; Charles Love Mullins, Jr. of Nebraska, class of April 1917, the founder of the NMA and its first superintendent.

We are actively seeking additional information regarding General Mullins and his wife.
