They have helped us all.
They have fought for us.
They have served our country.
They have ensured that all Americans wake, breathe and walk in freedom.
They are veterans, and they are with us every day. They served in the Army, the Navy, the Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Air Force. They served in World War II, in the Korean War, in the Gulf Wars, and in other wars and areas of service. Some have served in Afghanistan.
And they come back after they have fought and served. They move to, and they return to Pagosa Country.
Though it is not enough, one day out of the year Americans take time on Veterans Day to honor, celebrate and thank veterans for everything they have done for this country and its people.
The Pagosa SUN would like to honor our veterans by running special photo pages in the Nov. 10 edition.
To be part of this commemoration, send your service picture, along with your name, branch of service, rank and hometown, to firstname.lastname@example.org or to The SUN office at P.O. Box 9, Pagosa Springs, CO 81147.
The deadline for submissions is Thursday, Nov. 3. Only the first 72 submissions will be printed.
Please, join The SUN in honoring the veterans of our nation’s military.
