Veteran’s Day Salute

For this year’s November FWRJ issue, we would again like to pay tribute to veterans working within our three associations to coincide with Veterans Day (November 11). A very nice photo layout will be put together highlighting industry veterans. In order to accomplish this, we need your assistance identifying veterans within your organizations. We are interested in any and all veterans as a cross section of our membership. Please send us names and contact information of any veteran you would like to honor by September 3 in order to meet our deadline.

Thanks for your assistance!
