Veterans on military service

This Veterans Day, we'd like to honor those who have served by giving them a space to share their stories. So if you're a veteran, we want to hear about your experience. The catch? You must do it by completing this single sentence:


My name is _______, I served in the _______ War or in the years _______, and the one thing I want you to know about military service is ________________.


Good or bad, we want to know how you'd complete the phrase above. You can either submit a short video or write out your response, and please make sure to include a photo of yourself during the time you served. Your thoughts could be featured in a story for CNN. Thank you for your service!
