Thousands of stories could be told about the men and women
who have served the U.S. in Iraq and Afghanistan and about their readjustment
as they return home. People need to hear those stories. And there needs to be a
place where people can find and share related news and information.
Thanks to being among 75 daily news companies nationwide in
the Digital First Media family, The Saratogian is able to bring you special reports
that we would not have the wherewithal to provide on a strictly local level –
like American Homecomings.
This year-long project includes interactive layers of frequently
updated human interest stories, videos, pictures, blogs, news and information
for and about returning veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and their
Eight veterans with different backgrounds and challenges and
being tracked for the length of the project, and you can follow their lives at
American Homecomings. You can also offer your comments, and even share your own
stories and pictures.
As we continue to report on our local veterans and provide
live chats on related issues, we also call your attention to American
Homecoming at www.saratogian.com and @AmerHomecomings. They are our stories, too.
