This Veteran's Day, November 11th, The Young and the Restless, will observe the day with two episodes which will feature U.S. veterans, as well as a CBS Cares PSA. The PSA which features Steve Burton will lead viewers to www.VA.gov, which raises awareness of education and employment for our U.S Veterans.
In this episode Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) will host a fundraiser to honor veterans, which will also bring her close to her long-lost son, Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton). who served in Afghanistan.
Victor Newman(Eric Braeden),will announce a plan to have his company, Newman-Chancellor Enterprises, provide jobs for qualified U.S. veterans, letting people know that he values veterans as employees and asking other employers to also hire what he considers well proven leaders. This idea has been seen in many companies across the US and is an excellent way to employ these hard working men and women.
Y&R invited 12 U.S. veterans from the US Marines, Army and Navy who had served in World War II, Vietnam, the Gulf War and Iraq to take part in these memorable scenes. Peter Bergman and Sean Carrigan, who play veterans on Y&R will appear with them.
The Young and the Restless worked with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for authentic scenes in the memorable storyline.
Y&R can be seen weekdays on CBS at 12:30 p.m. est
