Our special tribute to those who have served comes to an end this week after a for-week run. During that time, we have featured more than 170 photographs, with more than 190 service members. It has been our honor to participate in this show of appreciation to the many men and women with Mason County connections that have served our country. On Monday of this week, we received a stack of additional photographs to include in the tribute; but, did not have time to scan all of them in for publication. We have decided that we will continue our tribute in six months, just in time for Veterans Day on November 11. So, if you did not get your photos in, get them to Chris Dyer or Lawrence Spell and we will repeat this well-deserved pictorial salute in the fall.
