American Veteran on PBS
November 10, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
“American Veteran” traces the veteran experience through a four-part broadcast and streaming series on PBS and PBS.org. Featuring testimony from a diverse group of nearly 50 veterans – young and old, enlisted and officers, men and women, from all five branches of the military, and more – the programs offer powerful personal stories of service.
Virtual Event on November 10 at 6pm.
“American Veteran” is hosted by four veterans: comedian, tv host, and former Marine Drew Carey; Iraq War Army veteran and Purple Heart recipient Tammy Duckworth; award-winning actor, Native American (Cherokee) activist, and Vietnam War Army veteran Wes Studi; and actor, motivational speaker, and Iraq War Army veteran J.R. Martinez.
American Veteran is a story told through personal remembrances, drawing civilian viewers into an unfamiliar culture. From hosts to interviewees, everyone is a veteran. In war and in peace, what veterans have done in our nation’s name and how they have been treated is an essential part of the American story. The American Veteran: Keep it Close digital series drops bi-weekly through Jan. 11th on PBS’ Voices YouTube channel. American Veteran: Unforgettable Stories podcast drops weekly through Dec. 14. Four-part PBS broadcast airs and streams weekly starting Tuesday, Oct. 26 at 9/8c. Major funding for American Veteran is provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and others. A
