HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR STORIES AND PICTURES

STEP 1 Get out the shoebox where your old Southeast Asia snapshots or slides are stored. Look them over and see if they bring back memories from the recesses of your 25 to 35 year old memory cells. 

STEP 2 Sit down at your computer, typewriter or desk with a pencil and paper and write out a story or two.  If you canít do any of the above, let us know and weíll even arrange to take your oral story over the telephone.  Youíll get full credit for your story in the book.  Start your story with the following heading, which will stay with your story until we are ready to go to press:

          File Name:  (example: 5-68 Doe-1) This is important, the first numbers are the approximate month and year when the story took place, next is your last name, then a dash and number of this story, first, second, third and so on.    In the example, the story took place May 1968 and was submitted by a FAC named Doe and it is his first story

          Authorís name and call sign:

          Authorís unit and year(s) in SEA:

          Authorís mailing address:

          Authorís phone number:

          Authorís e-mail address:

          Submittal date:

          Authorís title of submittal: 

STEP 3a If you use a computer with MS Word, click on the E-mail address of the POC for your squadron or the Book Section your story applies to.  Add any explanations, such as ďphotos to follow by mailĒ in the E-mail.

Or STEP 3b If you do not have a computer with MS Word, mail your story to the POC for your squadron or the Book Section your story applies to.  Include any applicable notes.           

You see itís as easy as one, two, three

A word about pictures.  Photos can make all the difference.  They can make a good story a great one.  Weíll accept scanned pictures, snapshots, 35mm slide, official 8x10s or even maps.  We will scan them into our computers and return them promptly.  But, realizing what can happen in the in the mail, please donít send your priceless, irreplaceable treasure.  Take it a good photo shop and have it copied and send us the copy.  Label an inside envelope with the same information as your story, from step 2 above.  Send your pictures to Charles Pocock, 910 Forest View Road, Monument CO 80132 charmarpock@aol.com
