The Capital News wants to do its part to recognize those who fought, and in so many instances died, to defend our country’s freedoms.

In our annual Remembrance Day supplement, we want to acknowledge those in Kelowna and West Kelowna who were called or are currently serving our military at home and overseas.

We invite our readers to send us a photo mugshot of a relative, family member or friend who has served our country.

We will publish all the submitted photos in our Remembrance Day supplement.

Along with the photo we ask that the following information be included: Their name, what military branch they served in and when, and where they lived in the Central Okanagan. A short description of their experience in the Armed Forces can also be submitted.

Photos and accompanying information can be either dropped off at the Capital News office, 2495 Enterprise Way, or emailed to edit@kelownacapnews.com.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, Nov. 4, at noon.
