What do you know of military life?

Are you or a loved one in the military? Or a veteran of the armed forces? KPCC wants to hear about your experiences.

We're planning some live events and news programs this fall about how war is changing lives, families and communities in Southern California. We invite you help shape our coverage by sharing your insights and story ideas.

Why did you (or a loved one) enlist? What were the best and most challenging aspects of military service? How did your family adapt to military life? Did your time in the armed forces help your post-military work life and financial stability?

Your response to these questions is confidential and seen only by journalists. Nothing you share is aired or published without your permission. A reporter or producer might call for more information.
