Earlier this month, several veterans told their stories at the annual Stars and Stripes Celebration, in Rochester, an event that pays tribute to the local heroes of our Armed Forces.
As part of WXXI's Veterans Day coverage, below are interviews with three area veterans:
--Jenkins, who served in the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War
--RJ, a Marine who served in Iraq in 2005
--Jerry, who served in the Navy in Vietnam.
