Veterans Day 2013: Tell everyone #wheretheyserved (map)

Thanking vets


Two women hold up signs thanking the troops as members of the US military veterans' Rolling Thunder bikers group ride past in Washington on May 26, 2013 as the country marks Memorial Day.

There are over 20 million veterans living in the United States — with about 2 million of them residing in California, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Veterans Day is a day when we gather and honor those who served our country.

To pay tribute, we've been collecting stories about the paths California veterans have taken from our sunny state to the cities, oceans, lands and countries in which they served. 

Are you a vet? Did someone in your family serve? What do you know of their service? 

Tell us their story in this short form, and check out our map below:
