We at the Lynden Tribune and Ferndale Record newspapers are making plans for our annual Veterans Day special section. 

This year we want to share your story, and by you, we mean Whatcom County men and women who served in the U.S. armed forces. 

We are asking you to submit a short story of your service, as well as photos, to bill@lyndentribune.com by Friday, Oct. 22. Please limit your story to no more than 200 words.

Submissions need to include the veteran’s full name, city of residence, dates of service in the U.S. military, branch of service, military rank, medals and commendations. 

Please also include your contact information just in case we have any questions.

For more information, call Bill Helm at 928-300-0522.

The special Veterans Day section will be published Nov. 3 in observance of Veterans Day.
