In commemoration of Veteran’s Day, the American Homefront Project collaborated with the PBS documentary series "American Veteran" to profile men and women who have served in the U.S. military.

These four profiles - newly produced for Veterans Day 2022 - were excerpted from the companion podcast, "American Veteran: Unforgettable Stories."

Each has a running time of 4 minutes. They are available both with and without a pre-recorded intro and outro.

Stations may broadcast all five segments or a smaller number of individual profiles.
