We asked InsideNoVa readers to tell us about the important veterans in their lives, and it’s clear when you read these submissions that the service of these men and women has left a lasting impression on their families and friends.
Seeing the work and sacrifice of our veterans inspires some to serve and others to value military service and seek out opportunities to help our veterans.
In a community that still has so many neighbors actively serving, it’s encouraging to see the support that our local veterans receive long after they have left the battlefield or completed their mission.
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, we’re happy to recognize and honor local veterans for their service in the following pages, and we thank the advertisers whose support made this recognition possible. For more information on how you can continue to support veterans, visit www.volunteer.va.gov.
