WP Magazine is marking Veterans Day this year with a special photo issue. Many of you have family members serving this country, from front lines to rear guard, from battlefield to desk. If they have sent you photos of life on the job, please e-mail them to by Monday, Oct. 14.

Please include your name, city of residence and phone number in your e-mail, and write “Veterans Day — military personnel’s name” in the subject line.

Images should be high-resolution jpegs of at least 300 dpi. For images taken on cellphones, we ask that you send photos at their original file size instead of a compressed version.

All images should be accompanied with how the photo should be credited, as well as basic caption information: the who, what, where, when and why.

By sending the image to The Washington Post, you are saying
you are the copyright holder and
have permission to distribute the image to third parties. Generally, the people who take the photos hold the rights.

We can’t publish all entries received, but we’d love to consider as many as possible for print and online.
