Military service is among the most meaningful ways to protect American democracy. Generations of men and women form a core part of this nation’s identity: Sacrifice to uphold the freedom of others. We want to honor them by asking veterans to share their stories. We will publish the names, branch of service and years of service in a special insert on Nov. 11. If you or a loved one are a veteran and would like to participate, please fill out the fields below. All submissions will be included in an online photo gallery on StarExponent.com.
