County seeks photos of local service members, veterans


Two “Veterans’ Trees,” which will be decorated with Pulaski County armed forces members and veterans will again be featured as part of the county’s holiday display.

The county is inviting families to submit framed, miniature copies of photographs of any veterans or currently serving members of the armed forces who have lived in Pulaski County at some point. The photos will become property of Pulaski County and will be used annually in the display. The Veterans’ Trees will be displayed on the first floor of the Old Stone Courthouse throughout the months of November and December.

Photos of the individuals in uniform are preferred, and should be in frames no bigger than 3 by 5 inches and no heavier than one quarter of a pound. The following information should also be turned in with the photo: name of veteran; rank and branch of service; war served in or location of service; dates of service; and name, address and phone number of person submitting the photograph.

Families are asked to submit photos by Friday, Nov. 1 to Pulaski County Administrative Office, 143 Third St. NW, Suite 1, Pulaski, VA 24301. Photos may be mailed dropped off in person. Photos received after the Nov. 1 deadline may not appear in the display. For further information, interested parties may contact the office at 980-7705.
