Stories from the Iraq war

We’re looking for personal stories from the war. If you have a loved one coming home, served in Iraq, lost a family member in the war, worked as a contractor, are an Iraqi civilian or lived in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003, we want to hear from you.


Upload photos and videos from your homecoming celebrations or time in Iraq, or put yourself on camera and share your thoughts about the end of this controversial chapter in American history.


Please consider these questions:


What does it mean to you that the war is about to end?

Was the war worth it?

How did it change your life?

How did the U.S. do?

What still needs to be done?


Your story could be featured on CNN.
