In conjunction with this year’s tribute to all WWII veterans this Veterans Day, Legion and VFW leadership is asking local WWII veterans and their families to share stories, pictures and in particular letters from or to veterans serving at that time.
Veterans Day organizers intend to use the materials to weave together a narrative with our local veterans as the primary focus. Stories or items may derive from either the European or Pacific Theaters, or anywhere else in the world.
“There are millions of memories out there; our hope is to capture just a few of them,” said Legion Commander Dorian Gatchell.
Individuals who have items of interest that they would like to share, be it story, picture or letter, can contact Dorian Gatchell at 320-981-0161 or at email@example.com. It asked that any items be shared as soon as possible in order to provide ample preparation time for the November 11 event.
