This November, we want to celebrate our area Veterans by sending a few of our local heroes to Kansas City for a weekend getaway.

Submit a photo of a Veteran (a family member, friend, yourself, etc.) along with a brief description of why he/she could use a weekend getaway to Kansas City. As hard as it might be, please keep your stories to 75 words or fewer. We'll share some our favorites on air throughout the contest. On November 26, we'll randomly draw four submissions and each will win a one-night stay at the beautiful Chateau Avalon.

And remember, Kansas City's Chateau Avalon is offering 50% off rooms throughout the entire month of November for servicemen and women and first responders. For more information on Chateau Avalon, visit
