"Who kept the faith and fought the fight; The glory theirs, the duty ours."  ~Wallace Bruce

I am currently working on turning my stories into a book paying what is, for me, the ultimate tribute to the men and women who have so graciously welcomed me into their lives to share their stories. More information to come…

There is no greater sacrifice than to give one's life to preserve the freedoms of a stranger.

Welcome to Jannette Jauregui.com. This site is dedicated to preserving the history of veterans of war and paying tribute to those who have sacrificed everything in the name of freedom. I have been writing veteran profiles for 12 years, most recently as part of my column, Of War and Life, in The Ventura County Star. All stories and videos have previously been published in The Ventura County Star or Santa Paula Times.




Of War and Life: A Decade of Stories



A book comprised of the first decade of my column (2001-2011) will be published in the fall of 2013. The full stories of each veteran I've written about will be included. An exhibit at the California Oil Museum will accompany the release of the book. Please check back for updates on the exhibit and publication, book signing events, and where to buy a copy.
