Sharing your story - either with close friends or family members - or with the whole world via
the Internet, can be a powerful experience.  There is something liberating and healing that
happens when you tell other people about your experiences, successes, challenges, and
lessons learned.  

It can also be
extremely helpful to the many other Veterans and family members who are
currently faced with the challenge of returning to "civilian" life following combat, to hear
stories from other people.  Knowing that others are feeling the same (or similar) way keeps
all of us from feeling alone in our "new" lives.

If you would like to share your story, please send it via e-mail to blog-at-familyofavet.com.  
Please make sure to include:  We (and the almost 2 Million Veterans of Iraq & Afghanistan
and their loved ones) would love to hear from you.


When publishing your story on our site or blog, we will only include your "byline".  
We do require your full name and e-mail address on this form so that we can verify your
submission if needed.  

Please include any other details that you would like to share with other site visitors (your e-
mail address, former unit information, etc.), inside the text of your story.  Thank you so
much for contributing!

How would you like your name (your "byline") to appear at the bottom of your story?
(
Examples: "John" or "John Doe" or "John D." or "A Wounded Veteran")

from you.


HOW TO SHARE YOUR STORY


To submit your story please send it via e-mail to blog-at-familyofavet.com.  Be sure to read
the following and include the details listed below:

  1. In the SUBJECT of your e-mail please include "MY STORY" so that it can lands in the
    right place (with our wonderful volunteer who handles story submissions :) ).
  2. The TITLE you would like for us to use for your story.
  3. The "byline" you would like to use if you don't want your name included (if you do not
    include a byline, your full name will not be used only your initials.  However, if you
    would LIKE for your name to be used, please let us know that, too!  (examples of a
    "byline": "Wife of a hero", "Wounded Soldier", "Proud Veteran")
  4. We will not include email or other contact information when your story is posted.  If
    you would like to have this information included (please use wisdom and understand
    that while we *greatly* encourage heroes and families to connect with each other,
    openly posting contact information on the Internet is generally a bad idea).
  5. By e-mailing your story to the address above (blog-at-famliyofavet.com) you
    are indicating that you understand it may be publicly shared on our blog,
    website, or other outreach locations & projects benefiting the Veterans and
    families served by Family Of a Vet.  By sending your story, you are agreeing
    that we can freely use it for those purposes!!
