(WJBK) -

To help honor those who serve and those who have served on Veterans Day 2013, Fox 2 asked its viewers to send in photos of loved ones, friends and family who answered the call of duty.

The photos are being used to create a "Tribute to Our Troops" photo gallery.

It's also to help commemorate the 10th Anniversary Special "Tribute to Our Troops" that airs Monday, Veterans Day, at 6:30 p.m., of course right here on Fox 2.

So far we've received well over 100 photos.

While our team worked to publish the photos, one, among the many great ones, stands out.

Diane submitted the photo in this story.  In the caption she posted this:

Norbert Dlugoss proudly served in World War II.  He passed away November 4, 2013, just days ago.  Norm and his wife would have celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on Veteran's day, today.  We all miss and love him.

Diane (James) Munroe told posted the photo.  She told me over the phone that her dad was a true family man.  He worked at Ford as a design engineer.  He and his wife June had five kids, 7 grand kids and 7 great- grand kids.  They would have celebrated their 70th anniversary on Monday.  He served in the 82nd Airborne Division during Word War II.

Our condolences to the Dlugloss family.  We also salute Norbert Dlugloss and express our deepest gratitude for serving this great country.  God Speed.

The Fox 2 Family.
