Here are two postmarks with Cold War tie-ins.

This one notes the famous "Iron Curtain" speech given by Winston Churchill in Fulton, Missouri, in which his phrase was first used.  A 'station' can be a small post office, not the main one of a city; these stations are given names, Cold War in this case.
