One consequence of that tragic day is that seven years later we have men and women serving in war zones in Iraq, Afghanistan, and around the world. We asked members of the military—both retired and active—to talk about how the events of 9/11 shaped their service commitment.

Voices heard: Angel Montes, Adam Navarro-Lowrey, James Redden, Ginny Narsete, and James January.
