Veteran photos sought
The Wasco County Veteran’s Office is seeking pictures of local people serving in the military to display during the holiday season.
“I think people need to know who’s protecting our community,” said Janet Remington-Sedey, widow of a veteran and a volunteer at the office.
She and Jean Maxwell, volunteer coordinator, decided to answer the county’s challenge for all departments to decorate a door in their respective offices. The 201 Federal Street building where veteran claims and benefit applications are processed decided to feature men and women from around the Mid-Columbia region who are on active duty, reservists or members of the Oregon National Guard.
Maxwell is asking that photos be dropped off from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the next two work weeks. Pictures can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information call 541-506-2502.
