James Born, a retired U.S. Army Master Sergeant, is looking for help as he puts together a book dealing with Vietnam veterans who received the Bronze Star.
“If you have been awarded the Bronze Star Medal (with or without the combat “V”) and you would like to have your award considered for recognition in my new book, to be archived as a public historical event, ” Born told us, send him an email that contains jpeg attachments of a “clean, undamaged, and readable copy” of the Award Certificate and the accompanying Award Citation.
You may also include a photograph of yourself taken in country—“not in a group setting, but as an individual image of yourself, ” he says. Send copies of your photos, as none will be returned.
Email your submissions or questions to email@example.com
The deadline for submissions is August 18.
