Here's a chance to honor loved ones in service

The Bee is searching for information about men and women from the Modesto area serving in Afghanistan and the Middle East as part of our "In Service" feature, which will run occasionally.

Family members wanting to submit information should include name, age, rank, branch of service, hometown, specialty, where the individual is serving, names of immediate family members and their hometowns, and a little background on the service member.

A color photo also is needed. Send information to Karen Aiello, The Modesto Bee, P.O. Box 5256, Modesto 95352; or e-mail
