The Business Journal asked readers to to tell us about their military service. Their stories are part of our Salute to Veterans coverage.

Daniel Rossi served 13 months in the U.S. Navy, most of that during peacetime, he says. After the war ended, he served aboard the USS Cape Johnson, transporting troops from island to island.
