Homes of the Brave – A Veteran’s Story Wall

HDC-Blog-Post-Homes-of-the-Brave_2324A long time ago, there was a terrible war. At the time, it was called “the war to end all wars.” Unfortunately, circumstances dictated that the war had to be renamed World War One. After four terrible, violent years, the war ended on “the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” in 1918. This day came to be known as Armistice Day and was celebrated every year on November 11th. It was a day to celebrate the ceasefire and honor those who served in the first World War.

After the second World War, Armistice day became known as Veteran’s Day to honor all the women and men who served in the Armed Forces. As they did then, today these brave individuals sacrifice their own safety and the protection of their homes and loved ones in order to serve and protect the American people and ideals.

The path our servicemen and servicewomen walk is not an easy one. They often go without the comforts we at home take for granted. The grass on the ground, the clean air, a warm, comfortable bed. The ability to pick up a phone and talk to their loved ones. To meet them for a meal or cup of coffee. These are precious things.

After months or years away, our soldiers’ homecoming can be one of the greatest joys we experience. To commemorate our servicemen and servicewomen, we’ve created a veteran’s story wall. At, we value the dedication and bravery our military services demonstrate to protect the freedoms of this great nation that we live in. Use the story wall to browse the current homecoming stories or share your own story of what “Coming Home” means to you or your loved ones!

One thought on “Homes of the Brave – A Veteran’s Story Wall

  1. Thank you! As a father of 3 sons currently serving in our military a story like this is special. It tells of times bad and good and also a reminder of those who gave all and those who remember WW2,Korea, Vietnam, Kosovo, Granada, Desert Storm and Afghanistan. There are also those who served who are not recognized as much and we salute them just as much. The families today or those serving are the same families of those since our country began. Thank you for this article. A special salute to those who gave all so we can be here today reading this article.
