Veteran’s stories sought for Courage Remembered

Special supplement to be published in Victoria News on Nov. 7.

Do you have a military veteran in your life whose story you’d like to see told?

Victoria News would love to connect our readers with your family member or friend who served in the Armed Forces in the recent or distant past, during a war or in a peacekeeping role.

Our upcoming annual Remembrance Day section, entitled Courage Remembered, will be published inside the Nov. 7 edition of your community newspaper.

Along with special feature stories that touch on Greater Victoria’s military past and the experiences of residents who served, a special section is reserved for reader-submitted writeups and photos of veterans from around the Capital Region.

If you’d like to submit a story, please include a brief biography, where they served, and any interesting stories about their time in uniform. Please limit submissions to 75 words and include a photo (preferably in uniform) with the veteran’s full name, branch of service and rank if available.

The submission deadline is Friday, Oct. 31 at 5 p.m. Send electronic versions to creative@vicnews.com or hand deliver hard copies of your material, labelled “Courage Remembered,” to First Floor, 818 Broughton St. in Victoria, between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.
