The Naples Daily News, the Scripps newspaper in Naples, began delivery of the U.S. edition of Stars and Stripes, the independent newspaper for the military community, on Nov. 17, 2012.
Stars and Stripes, founded in 1861, will be inserted in the Naples Daily News two times a month on Saturdays.
Primarily distributed overseas until recently, Stars and Stripes is expanding to serve military communities on U.S. soil. Southwest Florida is one of six initial markets for the new stateside edition of Stars and Stripes and the Naples Daily News will be the sole distributor in Southwest Florida.
The Stars and Stripes U.S. edition will be comprised of national and international news and features for servicemen and women and their families and will contain local event news and advertising.
