A band of veterans, family members and friends of veterans recently published an anthology of military memoirs covering World War II to Korea, Vietnam and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

After nearly two years of collecting, drafting and editing stories, the Rochester Veterans Writing Group published “United in Service. United in Sacrifice.” These accounts stem from workshops at Writers & Books on University Avenue.

Members come from all branches of service, ranks and professional backgrounds. Co-founder and retired Army Lt. Col. Tim Hansen said the group’s greatest strength is the trust and respect among members.

“United in Service. United in Sacrifice” is available at
