Ben Colin, Tom Griswald

In this photo taken on Thursday, June 12, 2014, former Marine Sgt. Ben Colin, left, and Army veteran Tom Griswald talk about their experiences serving in Iraq at the Sheehy-Palmer VFW Post 6776 in Albany, N.Y. This week’s stunning advance left many U.S. veterans reflecting, with bitterness, frustration and sadness, on the sacrifices of a war that lasted for more than eight years and killed nearly 4,500 Americans and tens of thousands of Iraqis. “Losing Fallujah ... I really just honestly wanted to throw chairs across the room because what I've done there has basically just been undone,” said Colin. (AP Photo/Hans Pennink
