NEMGS is Seeking Vets Photos

The preservation comittee has been working on a text entitled Alpena's Service in the Great War for greater than 2 1/2 years. We are nearing the editing stage which means all pages must be correctly compiled for the printer.
We would ideally like a photo of your soldier in uniform, but a wedding portrait works as most men married within 1-5 years after they returned home. We define an "Alpena Veteran" as an Army, Navy, Marine, or Coast Guard man or woman who enlisted and Alpena County received credit for their enlistment, or a veteran who is buried in Alpena County. If you have such a photo and wish to share it for this publication please contact Bob Lakin at or RM Guthrie at
