In conjunction with our special veterans issue of Our State magazine, we are collecting personal essays honoring those who have served our country. Would you like to honor a veteran by sharing his or her story, thank a veteran for his or her service, or share your own military memories? Simply add your comments in the section below. Scroll down to read messages submitted by others and to share your own. All comments are moderated in accordance with our Online Community policy.
We look forward to hosting your stories on this page.
