The Issaquah Press honors local veterans in special section

May 10, 2011

By Staff

For the second consecutive year, in its Memorial Day issue, The Issaquah Press will publish profiles of Issaquah men and women who served in the U.S. armed forces.

Issaquah residents who would like to honor a family member or friend in the newspaper who was not in last year’s edition can download a form from the website, or pick up a form at The Issaquah Press’ office in downtown Issaquah.

Email photos to or mail them to The Issaquah Press to be scanned by May 18.

There is no cost to submit a profile.

In last year’s issue, The Press honored 87 Issaquah veterans, including 19 who were killed in wartime — two in World War I, 13 in World War II and four in Vietnam.

The Memorial Day section will remind the public of those who served the U.S. during times of war and peace.

To support the Memorial Day section with a sponsorship, write a check to The Issaquah Press and put “Memorial Day” in the “for” section.
