Veterans honor late longtime advocate
Every day is Memorial Day for a combat veteran who often struggle for years, if not a lifetime, to make sense of what happened in war, according to Dr. Pat Stone, a decorated Vietnam veteran.
Military families often seem to inhabit an alternate universe at this time in history.

Even if our loved one made it home alive, we all know families who were not so fortunate.
