If you know a military veteran, ask if he or she would like to tell their story. Record it. Write it. Ask about photographs that may be tucked away in a shoebox in an attic. Or letters home. Or mementos. Or medals. Ask about the stories behind those objects. Ask “What did you do during the war, Great-grandpa?”
Then share those stories and images with us here at Legion Magazine. Use the form below to upload your text and photos. After a brief review period, those selected will appear at https://legionmagazine.com/en/category/our-veterans/memoirs/.
Help us ensure that veterans’ tales of achievement and sacrifice—recounted in their own words—can be collected for others to read and appreciate.
