    Judge Comment: Interesting, well-written stories accompanied by a beautiful design. Great work finding such interesting stories - a current broadcaster, a father & son acting duo, a female pilot, the first local man to die in WWII, etc. The cover is a standout. Veteran Voices is an outstanding piece of work.
