As Veteran's Day approaches, we want to hear about the special veteran in your lives. What did their service or sacrifices mean to you?

Or if you're a veteran, we want to hear what about the biggest personal takeaways from your service.

Send your thoughts in letters to the editor of 150 words or less to letters@nwi.com or mail them to Letters to the Editor, 601 W. 45th Ave., Munster, IN 46321.

If available, please also email or enclose a photo of the veteran, along with the veteran's name and your name, city/town of residence and a phone number where we can reach you to verify the letters.

All veteran-themed letters must be received by Nov. 8 for use in a special Veteran's Day publication in The Times as well as online at nwi.com/opinion
