Hero in Our Midst

Iraq War veterans
A little more than 5 ½ years ago, the U.S. military descended upon Iraq to end Saddam Hussein’s reign. Operation Iraqi Freedom has been an unpopular war, but despite that fact, Sacramentans hold the conflict’s veterans in high esteem, saluting them for courage and valor, for their grit in combat on dusty foreign soil in defense of our country. Many troops from the Sacramento region did not return, and many more of them did not return whole. For your bravery and sacrifice in the Middle East, we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
