More than 1.6 million veterans call the tri-state region home. To honor the service, experiences and rich diversity of our region's veteran communities, WLIW invites local veterans and their family members to share personal stories about their service at home and abroad, and their lives after service.

This project is part of a public media effort to focus attention on and inspire national dialogue about veterans' issues and stories. The stories were received from viewers and readers through this Legacies of War project and in connection with THIRTEEN's Media with Impact campaign. For additional storytelling and programming about veterans, stay tuned for Ken Burns' landmark PBS series, The Vietnam War, premiering in September 2017.
