Wanted: Veterans Day tribute

Veterans Day is Nov. 11, and The Lima News is interested in hearing from our readers for a special publication, “Salute to Veterans.” 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 your thoughts on what you missed most about Ohio while you were serving. What regular piece of civilian life felt absent while you were away? What was the first thing you enjoyed once you returned here?

To participate, send your thoughts via email [email protected] or via mail to David Trinko, 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’re submitting via email, please attach a high-resolution .jpg instead of pasting the image into the body of the email.

• Your current age

• Your address and phone numbers (not for publication)

• Your story. Stories should be at least 300 words, but longer stories are welcome.

Submissions must be received by 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28.
