StoryCorps visited the Colorado State campus in the spring of 2016.

As Veteran’s Day approaches, the stories of these veterans and their families offer a glimpse into the sacrifices they made while serving. In partnership with StoryCorps, KUNC presents a series of unique and powerful stories told by Colorado veterans and their families.
