American Veteran

“American Veteran,” created by GBH, will trace the Veteran experience through a four-part broadcast series, a nine-part podcast, and a ten-part series of digital shorts.

From the citizen-soldiers returning from the Revolution to today’s warrior class, it is a deeply moving story, highlighting personal remembrances, drawing civilian viewers into an unfamiliar culture, and showcasing the evolving relationships between Americans who have served in the military and those who have not.

Every voice featured in “American Veteran,” from narrators to interviewees to scholars belongs to a Veteran. Every story these Veterans relate contributes to our exploration of the shifting relationships, over time, between Veterans and civilians.

Exclusive Premiere and Panel Discussion
