Honored to Serve

Honored to Serve is designed to help educate and inform WETA viewers about the people in the armed forces and their families, past and present, and to provide a deeper appreciation of U.S. military history. Rather than viewing them as "a force apart," these interstitials help citizens recognize soldiers and their families as part of a common family with shared values and goals as a nation.
