SALEM — Salem veterans with wartime combat service will be honored on Veterans Day.

To date, more than 150 local veterans have received Wartime Service Medals.

To be eligible, veterans must have been city residents at the time of enlistment. Anyone who may be eligible should send information to the Salem Veterans Council, Attention Wartime Service Medal, P.O. Box 70, Salem, MA 01970, or contact Veterans’ Agent Kim Emerling at 978-745-0883.
