Watch stories of service from our nation's military veterans, their families, and their communities through PBS’ extensive documentaries, specials, and digital content that include autobiographical stories and historic recreations. See PBS videos from the National Memorial Day Concert.

“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.”

PBS also provides resources for veterans and their families in the following categories: education, health, jobs, families... PBS states its mission is "...to create content that educates, informs and inspires. To do this, PBS offers programming that expands the minds of children,documentaries that open up new worlds, non-commercialized news programs that keep citizens informed on world events and cultures and programs that expose America to the worlds of music, theater, dance and art. "

PBS asserts that it is now more than a broadcast organization, but as a " multi-platform leader it serves Americans through television, mobile TV, the Web, interactive whiteboards in the classroom and more. PBS reaches nearly 109 million people through television and over 28 million people online each month. PBS is a private, nonprofit corporation, founded in 1969, whose members are America’s public TV stations -- noncommercial, educational licensees that operate more than 350 PBS member stations and serve all 50 states, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam and American Samoa."
