Nominate your military hero

May 19, 2019 GMT

With Memorial Day near, it’s a great time to salute the women and men who have served our country in the military.

The Winona Daily News Stories of Honor program is your opportunity to salute a veteran.

We invite you to nominate a veteran or someone who is now serving in the U.S. Armed Forces or the Reserve. To nominate, go to www.winonadailynews.com/contests.

We want to hear the stories of allegiance, heroism and selfless determination — the stories that set our military personnel apart.

Nominations will close June 16.

A panel will review all nominations and select 10 heroes who deserve a special salute.


The Stories of Honor program is sponsored by LHI/Weber Group.

Our coverage will include a half-page story and photo each Sunday, plus a Facebook Live interview with each honoree and a video tribute of each hero.

All of that coverage will be featured at winonadailynews.com until Veterans Day, when our 2020 Stories of Honor program begins.

In August, the Daily News will bring those heroes together for a special event, and we’ll publish a special section to honor those veterans.
