Needed: Vets’ stories, photos for upcoming Patriots section
Anyone who has served in the military, is currently on active duty or is a family member of a veteran with ties to this area is encouraged to submit information and pictures about their time in the military so they can be published in the annual Clinton Daily News Saluting our Patriots edition.
Stories and photographs (both pictures in uniform and candid military photos are needed) of veterans will be featured in the popular edition scheduled to be published July 26.
Those submitting photos and information may email their submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org or bring them to the Daily News office at 522 Avant Ave., Clinton, Okla., 73601.
The Daily News staff can scan their photos in about 15 minutes and return them so that they don’t need to leave their pictures.
Submissions can be from any era, and from war or peace times. The more information that can be supplied, including memories from when the individual was on active duty, the better.
Any name suggestions that can be supplied of veterans to be recognized, along with contact information, is appreciated.
The deadline to have your story and pictures included in this year’s Saluting our Patriots edition is Friday, July 11.
