Belarus has no maritime borders; nevertheless the life of many Belarusians is inextricably linked with the navy. After the Second World War and until 1992 almost a million Belarusians devoted their lives to the sea. Today, more than 200 thousand people, who served in the Navy in different years, live in Belarus..
 
The stamps project is dedicated to the four natives of Belarus: vice-admirals G. N.  Holostiakov, Ye.A. Tomko, V. P.  Drozd and rear admiral V. N.  Dronov.
 
The project was prepared in cooperation with the Belarusian Union of Military Seamen.
