The RESERVIST is published primarily to provide stories of interest to Coast Guard reservists. Submissions which contain a strong Reserve nexus receive the highest publication priority.
Articles for submission should be created as Microsoft Word (text only) documents. Generally, an article is approximately 750-1000 words accompanied by 2-3 photos. However, longer articles will be considered.
Photographs must be submitted as individual high resolution (5x7 at 300 dpi minimum) JPEG files. Individual photos should be no larger than 8 MB. When possible provide photo caption to include date taken and name of photographer.
Video file submissions must be in an WMV format, not larger than 50 MB and preferably less than 180 seconds.
