st: Regression with Year Dummy Variables

I have a question about interpreting coefficients on year dummy variables. I have a panel with 20 years and have dropped one dummy, the first year, and Stata drops an additional year, the last year, because I have a variable that is collinear with the year dummies. How should the coefficients on the remaining year dummies be interpreted? Does it matter if the years that are dropped are the first two or the last two or on either end of the sample?
