Veterans, family: Share stories, photos for special commemorative book

North of Boston Media Group is creating a coffee-table book featuring veterans from all wars and we would like to include your photos and stories in the publication.

The book, titled “North of Boston Salute To Veterans,” will look at the men and women who served in the Civil War up to Iraq and Afghanistan, paying tribute to those who died and offering insight on the impact on the communities these brave veterans left behind when they went to serve the country.

The release date is in December and will coincide with special events featuring speakers, brunch, a slideshow and an opportunity for veterans from all wars and their families to come together and share camaraderie.

Photo-scanning dates will be held in July and August at The Eagle-Tribune, The Newburyport Daily News, The Salem News, The Gloucester Daily Times, and The Derry News.
