The News Virginian is currently accepting nominations for an upcoming special section that pays tribute to our area’s veterans.
The section honoring local veterans will be included in the Nov. 10 edition of the paper. We will accept submissions for the publication, which will feature stories and profiles of Waynesboro and Augusta County veterans, until Oct. 18.
The submissions must be of living military veterans representing the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or Coast Guard. Conflicts may include World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam, the Middle East and current conflicts where our nation’s service members are stationed across the globe.
You may choose to submit a nomination online, using this form. Submitted information will be featured in an online photo gallery on our website.
Several veterans from the submissions will be chosen for feature-length profile stories that will be showcased in the section.
Please submit a veteran’s name, their current address, their hometown at the time of their service, their military branch, the highest rank they achieved, the number of years spent in the service and any overseas deployments.
Submissions should include at least two photos, one from the veteran’s time in the service and another from recent civilian life.
The News Virginian is teaming up with other BH Media Group properties in this project in support of our nation’s veterans.
