Stories of Courage. Stories of Sacrifice. Stories of Service


PBS has joined efforts with trusted public media partners to bring you Stories of Service, a multi-platform initiative that unites powerful stories and conversations around one of our country’s most resilient communities: our military veterans.

As part of PBS’ commitment to sharing stories important to our communities and our world, Stories of Service will connect programming and online initiatives tied to military service across public media. PBS viewers will be able to hear the stories and experiences of veterans as told through PBS’ extensive pipeline of documentaries and specials, and through original digital content coming directly from PBS member stations. Programming highlights include: 

  • Coming Back with Wes Moore
  • National Memorial Day Concert 
  • D-Day 360

“The programs featured as part of Stories of Service tell the compelling stories of those who have served and provide a deeper understanding of our nation’s military history,” said Paula Kerger, PBS President and CEO. “As America’s storyteller, we hope to spark conversations in communities and give the public an opportunity to share their personal or family story of service through local events and programs. Across the public television community, stations will be creating their own content and providing resources to returning veterans and their families.”
