We are proud to announce the beginning of a new War & Veterans section.
The War & Veterans section will focus on articles that bring insight into what it means to be a veteran in the 21st century.
What was the war like for you? What has it been like coming back to civilian life? How has it changed you? Has being in the military and/or fighting in a war changed your definition of being a man/woman? What does it mean to be a man/woman and veteran in the 21st century? Have you had any difficulties in coming home? PTSD? How have you dealt with the honor, and struggles, with being a veteran in the 21st century? Have you seen your husband/brother/friend/father change since being in the military?
On or off the battlefield, we want to learn more about life as a veteran and as a soldier.
The section will be run and edited by Iraq war veteran and author Michael Anthony. Michael is looking for the occasional submitter, or veterans willing to submit on a consistent basis. (Poetry and Youtube videos are welcome!)
A quick overview of our general submissions guidelines can be found here. Please send questions and submissions to Michael at:
If we don’t tell our stories, then someone else will!
