FOR THE AUTHORS
Participants in any SAR effort may submit a personal narrative of the experience, but good order and decorum require adherence to the following:
You may submit a narrative directly to the webmaster as e-mail or as an attachment. Each document submitted for the Narratives must contain in the heading or Title, either a: Valid Copyright notice, (which is defined as: the word Copyright; [Use of the © symbol is pointless as it will not stand in lieu of the word and adds nothing to it.] the four-digit year in which the document was created; and the name of the person or entity claiming the Copyright protection.); or, a statement from the author releasing the work into the public domain. Always include your name and the name and date of the SAR. (Multiple days on the same SAR are worthy of multiple Narratives.) Be a good story teller, strike a balance between wordiness and terseness. Never identify any other individual closer than callsign. Do not use the Narratives as a forum for acrimony, propagandizing or agendizing. Gratuitous vulgarity is the cherished tool of Hollywood's writers, but if you feel it is required in the telling of the story... Every good story has a moral or point or lesson learned. Share it with us. ("I learned about SAR from this") In the final analysis, it is your story; tell it the way you want it told.
