Restland Cemetery 

We’ve published many stories about veterans from different eras; most of them lost friends or saw fellow military men and women die in action.

As we memorialize those who gave their lives this weekend and on Memorial Day, take a few minutes to revisit some inspiring stories from those who served:

In 2010, we published the stories of several World War II veterans. At the time, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs had just reported that the ranks of World War II vets were shrinking by about 1,200 a day nationwide.

In 2015, our cover story featured several young vets with varying experiences in the Middle East.
