Military Outreach for Service > Heroes and Memories
This webpage is dedicated to real stories of military service, narrated in prose, pictures, video, or other methods by IRS employees who deployed to military duties around the world, or by their comrades, spouses, children, parents, other relatives, and friends. Some of the stories will be painful, as most war stories are, while others might celebrate personal or team successes.

To protect the privacy of our brave servicemen and women, we limit personal information since this website is accessible from the World Wide Web.

Please contact the MOS webmaster if you want help in creating a tribute.

A Special 2014 Memorial Day Tribute from Military Outreach for Service

Waving Flag More than 70 IRS employees, most of them military veterans, shared experiences and tributes in recognition of Military Appreciation Month and Memorial Day. Some of the stories are moving and all are appreciative of those who served and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

An example: "As a veteran & married to a veteran I can’t think of anything else we would have done. We feel service to our country was a privilege. It was & is an honor to have served. As we still battle ghosts we would not change anything," wrote Linda.
