If you are a military veteran with a story to share, we want to hear from you.

The McDowell News is publishing a special insert in the Sunday edition on Nov. 11, which also marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I: The 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month.

Military service is arguably the most patriotic action an American can do, and we want to hear from people who served.

We’re asking veterans to submit information and photos about their service. All submissions will be included in an online gallery featuring local veterans. Some will be chosen to be profiled in stories, videos and photos in the Veterans Day edition.

The project will focus on people who served in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Middle East and other conflicts ranging from the Cold War to military inventions in places like Grenada and Panama.

The intent is to archive the living stories of those who served, and who often go unrecognized for their sacrifices and service. This is not a telling of war stories. It’s a tribute.
