The Proud to Be anthology series is a creative writing anthology of poetry, fiction, essays, interviews, and photography submissions by and about veterans from across the nation, and spanning generations – from WWI to Iraq and Afghanistan.  It is an annual series, which was first released in November 2012.  The anthology is funded by MHC, edited by Dr. Susan Swartwout, and published by Southeast Missouri State University Press.  Submissions are reviewed by a panel of judges for inclusion in the anthology, with a $250 prize in each of the five categories listed above.  See books available for purchase below.
