President Obama Honors Iraq Vets With White House Dinner

Tonight, a group of Iraq veterans will join President Obama and the First Lady for a formal dinner at the White House to mark the end of the war.

Around 80 service members and their guests will be in attendance.

Those invited include men and women in uniform from all ranks, each U.S. state and territory, and every branch of the Armed Forces. Together, they are representative of the hundreds of thousands of Americans who served in Iraq.

As the last American troops left the country, we put together a timeline to show what it took to end combat operations and begin fulfilling the promise we as a nation owe to those who served.

Go check it out.
