Seeking military, past or present to share their stories

Monday, April 28, 2008

The BannerGraphic is planning a tribute to all military personnel and would like to have their pictures and stories.

If you are related to or have served in any of the United States Armed Forces including the National Guard, we would like to hear from you.

Beginning at the end of May and running every Thursday until Nov. 1, the paper will have a half-page ad featuring military photos. Featured stories will run across the top half page. The ads will be sponsored by local business.

All photos will be placed in a special edition of the paper on Nov. 12 for Veteran's Day.

Send photos and stories to the BannerGraphic by e-mail at news@bannergraphic.com, fax to 765-653-2063 or drop them by the newsroom.
