Veterans Day is Nov. 11, and The Lima News is interested in hearing from our readers for a special publication planned for Nov. 10. We are seeking stories from people who are in active service as well as those who served in the past. We also welcome families to share their thoughts on what their loved one’s service meant to them.
We’d like to hear about your thoughts about the biggest myths you have faced about what your service time was like. Vietnam veterans, in particular, returned home to unrest. What do you think people are most mistaken about concerning your service? Do you find people have been taught well about bona fide history or do you find they’re forming their own opinions?
To participate, send your thoughts to:
Adrienne McGee Sterrett
Lifestyle/Special Sections Editor
The Lima News
3515 Elida Road
Lima OH 45807
Things to send:
• Your name, including when and where you served in the military
• Any photos taken during your time serving and a current photo. If you’d like to submit via email, please attach a high-resolution .jpg instead of pasting the image into the body of the email. If you’d rather submit a photo by mail, please send us a reprint of the photo instead of the original. Photos will not be returned.
• Your current age
• Your address and phone numbers (not for publication)
• Your story. Stories should be at least 500 words, but longer stories are welcome.
Letters must be received by 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 30.
