Service & Sacrifice: 2018 Highlights

2018 marked a year of reflection as we celebrated a decade of reporting our series.

We marked a decade of reporting our Service & Sacrifice series in 2018.

In addition to showcasing some of the almost 300 stories in our archive, we profiled a veteran who liberated a concentration camp in WWII.  We explored the move by one Vietnam veteran from combat to the pulpit.  And we highlighted the increasing role of female veterans in the United States Armed Forces and on the campus of the University of Tennessee.

Over the years we have documented East Tennessee veterans on return trips to D-Day beaches in France and the battlefields of Vietnam but every year we continue to meet dozens of "ordinary" neighbors who have a record of "extraordinary" service in uniform.
