National Veteran
Tribute Network

Is meant to give veterans and those currently serving a creative outlet to share their time in the service and how their experiences have shaped them. By collecting, preserving, and making accessible the personal accounts of veterans allows future generations to hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war and serving. Individual experiences may have been different, but when compiled they form a powerful snapshot of history. Veterans who have found their voice, shared their military story, and reaffirmed their values often find a sense of peace and a hopefulness that they did not have before. Veterans military stories are a permanent reminder of the sacrifices they have made to preserve our freedom.
