Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans: What did you leave behind?
When we hear about what U.S. forces are leaving behind in those countries, the conversation tends to focuses on bases, equipment and the fitness of local security forces. But the men and women who served there have often left more personal things behind.
If you're an Iraq or Afghanistan veteran, we want to hear what you left behind. It could be anything; a physical object or something less tangible. Help us to tell a different kind of story about America's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. We also want to hear about what you kept.
