**About PBS Stories of Service: As America’s storyteller, PBS is bringing together multi-platform content and powerful conversations around U.S. military veterans under the banner of Stories of Service. The national programming content features compelling stories of those who have served and provides a deeper understanding of our nation’s military history. Spanning across public television on air and on PBS.org, PBS member stations will be creating their own local content and providing community resources for returning veterans and their families. The Stories of Service initiative was announced in May 2014 along with a community engagement campaign for select PBS member stations and their local veterans and funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), called Veterans Coming Home. The PBS programing under Stories of Service, many with funding support from CPB, includes Coming Back with Wes Moore (May 13); National Memorial Day Concert (May 25); Death and the Civil War: American Experience (May 26); D-Day 360 (May 27); NOVA D-Day’s Sunken Secrets (May 28); Makers Women & War (Sep 2014); Craft in America’s Service (Nov 2014); Last Days in Vietnam (Winter/Spring 2015); Homefront (Winter/Spring 2015); La Batalla (2015); and Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s The Vietnam War w.t. (2016).
