Do you have a personal experience related to the American armed forces? Or a special memory of someone who was or is in military service?
This Veteran's Day (Friday, November 11, 2011) at 2 pm, the History Museum will honor those stories with a special reading of recollections written by or about military service members past and present. We invite members of the public to share your stories with us. We're looking for personal experiences related to this topic of 500 words or less. Anyone may participate. We simply ask that you indicate as part of your submission whether we have permission to post the story in the History Museum and/or read it aloud.
Submissions may be emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to:
Washington State History Museum
1911 Pacific Avenue
Tacoma, WA 98402
Although a story can be posted and read anonymously if requested, all submissions must include the name, address, and phone number of the person who wrote it. Submissions become the property of the Washington State Historical Society.
