In honor of Memorial Day on May 27, Inside CDCR is asking for stories about those who have fallen while serving in the military – either personally in your family or about someone you know.

Tell us why Memorial Day is special to you or about the sacrifices of those who have served our country. Inside CDCR will publish the remembrances just before Memorial Day.

If you have a photo you would like to share, we will try to publish that as well.

Please send your stories before May 20th to Don Chaddock, Inside CDCR editor, at Don.Chaddock@CDCR.ca.gov.
