I’m inviting veterans to send a one-sentence remembrance of a warrior buddy or friend who was killed in combat. The tribute will be used as part of a Memorial Day project honoring those we’ve lost on the battlefield which will then be submitted to national publications. Below are the guidelines for your tributes:
* Submit a one-sentence tribute honoring the friend you lost in combat.
* Use only their first name or nickname.
* Send your remembrance to: firstname.lastname@example.org by March 7, 2017.
* Tributes will be used in longer essays and may also be used for YouTube scroll of remembrance and/or Facebook page remembrance (also entitled “Remember Them 2017”) – you will be notified of these projects.
* Your tribute will remain anonymous. Think of this as an opportunity to say what you wish about your friend – give us a sense of who they were or what made the friendship so important or the thing you will always remember about them and/or how much they meant to you. Your sentence could be humorous or poignant, deeply heartfelt or raucous . . . whatever speaks to the bond you had.
* Your submission may be edited slightly for grammar or readability, but I’ll strive to preserve the aim of the tribute.
Thank you so much,
