At the Columbia Journal, we believe that the stories and voices of service members and civilians affected by war should be circulated and contemplated. Today marks our third Veterans Day Special Issue. We hope to honor those who have served, suffered, and survived during times of turmoil by featuring writing and creative expressions inspired by or concerning the military experience.
We want to thank everyone who submitted for sharing their work with us, and express our congratulations to our contributors. You can click on the title of each piece to read it in full.
