Salute to veterans book photo gathering days

North of Boston Media Group held several dates for veterans of war and their families to bring their photos to the company’s offices around the region to be scanned for inclusion in the upcoming coffee-table book, “North of Boston Salute To Veterans.”

Due out in December, the book looks at the men and women who were called to duty in the Civil War up to Iraq and Afghanistan, paying tribute to their service.

Nearly 1,500 photos were gathered. The book will feature an array of what was gathered, as well as historical perspectives on the wars and feature stories from local veterans.

Here are images from scanning dates at the offices of North of Boston Media Group newspapers. To purchase a copy of the book, visit www.eagletribune.com, or see the ad with a coupon for $10 off the cover price in today’s Daily News.
