I will present the Galactic gamma-ray measurements from the VERITAS experiment, an imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescope measuring gamma rays with energies higher than 85 GeV and up to ~ 30 TeV. Focusing on the supernova remnants, I will discuss what we have learned about the acceleration of high-energy particles with gamma-ray observations. I will also introduce the near-future balloon-borne experiment, HELIX (High Energy Light Isotope eXperiment), which is designed to measure the clock isotope 10^Be up to 10 GeV/n to study the propagation of Galactic cosmic rays. Finally, I will highlight how measurements from different disciplines, such as cosmic-ray and gamma-ray astrophysics, will broaden our perspectives on high-energy particles and advance us towards a new paradigm of Galactic cosmic rays.
