Over the past eight years, nearly every American has been affected by the war in Iraq, which officially ends today.

About 2 million U.S. service members were deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Records show that 4,484 died in Iraq and 32,313 were wounded.

Also affected have been the fathers and mothers of the troops, the anxious spouses back home, the Americans disillusioned by the bloodshed and those still confident the right action was taken.

These are some of their stories.
