In Their Boots: Veterans Day Special (7PM ET)

A show dedicated to the sacrifices military families make in wartime.

No matter how you feel about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the sacrifices military families make in wartime are immense. 

In Their Boots is a one-of-a-kind online show that gives viewers a glimpse into the world of service members and their families.  This video is a trailer for a special Veterans Day presentation.  Join us Tuesday November 11th for three real stories focusing on the lives of veterans affected by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

Unlike Memorial Day, when we pay tribute to those who have served our country and are no longer with us, Veterans Day is about recognizing the sacrifices of the more than 20 million men and women who have served and are serving in the Armed Forces.  I invite you to take a moment to consider how your life would be different if someone in your family were serving overseas, or struggling to rebuild a life after finally returning home.

This is the subject of In Their Boots.  Real people.  Real Stories.  A resource for connecting service members and veterans with support services, and a resource for engaging volunteers in support services.  It is all at www.intheirboots.com.  I hope you'll take a look.  

Happy Veterans Day.
