Deadline for veterans’ stories extended

American Legion

The Harold Kerr Post 173 of the American Legion has extended the deadline to Jan. 15 for inclusion of stories in the library quality book it will publish for its centennial celebration in 2019.

Veterans or their surviving relatives can submit 150-word submissions and a photograph will be included without a charge, while longer biographies will cost 15 cents per extra word and $5 per photograph.

The post hopes to have enough material to fill a 104 page 8 1/2-by-11 inch coffee table publication.

Books can also be ordered through the Jan. 15 deadline at a cost of $44.95 and personalized for an additional $7. It is not necessary to buy a book to submit a veteran’s biography.

The Harold Kerr Post, 120 Colton Ave., has fliers with detailed information on the project plus order forms for the books.
