“Veteran’s Trees,” decorated with photographs of Pulaski County veterans and members of the armed forces, will again this year be featured as part of the county’s holiday displays. To date, approximately 300 photographs of county veterans have been donated by family members. These photographs will be displayed on trees located on the 1st floor of the Pulaski County Old Stone Courthouse during the holiday season.
As has been done in the past, anyone wishing to provide a veteran’s photograph that has not previously been submitted may do so. Photographs of any veteran or current member of the armed forces who has lived in Pulaski County will be accepted. The photo, preferable of the veteran in uniform, should be framed with the size of frame and picture no larger than a 3”x4”, and not heavier than a quarter pound. Photographs are to be submitted to the Pulaski County Treasurer’s Office, Old Stone Courthouse, Main Street, Pulaski, 24301, 540-980-7785 by Monday, November 2, 2020. Photo’s submitted after this deadline may not appear on the display.
Information to be turned in with the photograph should, if possible, include:
- Name of veteran
- Rank/Branch of service
- War or location of service
- Dates of service
- Name, address and phone number of person submitting photograph
The photographs will become the property of Pulaski County and will be used annually to decorate the Veteran’s Trees.
This year the Veteran’s Trees are scheduled to be up for public viewing by Tuesday, November 17, 2020 and will remain on display until sometime during the first week of January 2021.
