STORIES WORTH SHARING

Stories Worth Sharing; What are They?

by Jud Blakely

 

A story "worth sharing" here on our FMDA website is pretty much up to what you believe (as a member) is worth writing and then sending to me.  Note: don't count on me to rewrite what you send or edit your prose for grammatical errors, etc.  I have neither the time nor inclination to do that.  Got other fish to fry.

 

That said, I invite you to leave no good story untold.  Of course, your story must be linked to your service as a Marine but doesn't have to be a recollection of combat or close calls in general.  Tell us the truth and give us a chance to laugh or smile or cry with you.  Feel free to contact me with your questions or comments.

But before you contact me, I advise you to take a careful look at what I require of you: (1) a mid-chest photo that's 800 pixels wide or more; (2) a story that does not exceed 750 words; (3) a first paragraph that conveys the point; (4) more photos that help capture the essence of the story.  Cell phones take good pics.
