During this week of reflection, we take a moment to look back on the issues and people who shaped the fifth year of our series focused on East Tennessee veterans.

Reviewing the titles of those individual pieces offers a hint at some of the ground we covered in 2013. They include: Soldier Retires, Cadet Flyer, Vietnam Python, Second Homecoming, PTSD Homecoming, Female Marine, 85th Birthday, Medal of Honor, Marine Dog, Two Theater Singer, Merchant Marine, WWII Death Rates, Fly Fishing, Four War Marine, Donut Dolly and Don't Call them Drones.

Many of them can be found in the archive section of this site. In all we produced close to two dozen stories in the past year. And in the five years of reporting for this series we have aired more than 150 stories. But in East Tennessee alone there are more than 160,000 military veterans.

We look forward to more of your emails, calls, and letters suggesting military issues and veterans we should pursue in 2014.
