Honor Your Military Family and Friends On Veterans Day
Share a Veteran's Story
Posted Date: 11/1/2013

Veterans Day is Monday November 11, 2013

The VHCC Student Veterans Association is planning a Veterans Day display on the large window panes behind the piano in the Wolves’ Den, and would like for you to share the stories of the great heroes that are remembered every Veteran’s Day in your heart. If you’ve got a story to tell, please share it with all of us. Help us fill all four windows, both sides!

We’ve put together a basic outline to help you get started. However, you do not have to use the starter sheet, or share a photo; just SHARE!

Three easy ways to share your veteran's story:

  1. You can submit the online Share A Veteran's Story form to the Veteran's Office
  2. You can save and email the Microsoft Word Share A Veteran's Story sample page to vhsva@vhcc.edu.  You can include your photograph in the Word document or see instructions below. 
  3. You can drop off a copy of the Microsoft Word Share A Veteran's Story sample page to the Veterans Office located in the Admissions Office (ISC-133). If Debbie Barrett is not there, please leave your stories and pictures with Jessica Seymour.

Submit a photograph:

If you would like to include a photograph please email it to vhsva@vhcc.edu.  Please include a Subject line with the Veterans Name exactly as it is spelled in the story.  We will match the subject line to the Veteran's name submitted online or hard copy at the Veterans Office. 

If you do not have a photo, we will insert the appropriate Military Seal in place of a photo.

We are hoping that all the photos can be the Veterans latest military photo, but any picture can be used in its place, and if neither of these options exists, please share what you do have.

 If you have multiple Veterans you remember, please share all your stories.
