Veterans Day

Memorial Day is for soldiers who didn't make it home. Today, Veterans Day, is intended as a reminder of those who've returned from wars fought on our behalf. Although they call to mind the victims of a senseless attack, these 13 brief stories about service men and women returning home or about to be shipped out to our messes in Iraq or Afghanistan, unsuspecting in what they thought was the safety and security of the Fort Hood community, embody those who are still serving or who have returned from war, too often scarred and damaged. And yet proud.

UPDATE: Sweet.
