The Meaning of Service
These individuals tell the stories of the attack on America on 9/11 in real time, and in the hours, days, weeks, months and years that followed. 9/11 shaped each individual in very personal ways as they would leave their families and homes and defend the nation. They bore the brunt of the fight with enemies of America and carry the pride of service to the nation and the burden of the sacrifice that only they may understand. Each Veteran tells in their own words what the attack on 9/11 did to change their lives in defense of America. These Veterans are representative of all the Veterans who served in the Post 9/11 era and give a glimpse of life in the military during war time.
