Veterans Coming Home Project Videos
Public Media Connect is honored to have been given the opportunity to be involved in the national Veterans Coming Home project over the last few months. Veterans Coming Home is an innovative cross-platform public media campaign that aims to bridge America’s military-civilian divide by telling stories, challenging stereotypes and exploring how the values of service and citizenship are powerful connectors for all Americans.
This project involved 24 public media stations, including our Cincinnati station CET, and all their individual partners working together to give a voice to the challenges, successes, resources and issues surrounding veterans and their efforts to transition to civilian life following their military service as well as what civilians can do to make that transition better.
As the project phase comes to a close, we’ll be posting our local videos on http://veterans.CETconnect.org between now and Wednesday, August 31. We’d encourage you to watch these videos and then join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @CETconnect with the #VetsComingHome hashtag.
We’d also like to thank our partners and friends who helped us bring this project full-circle including (but not limited to) the Cincinnati Police Department, Cincinnati State Community and Technical College, Easter Seals TriState, Ohio National Guard Employment Enhancement, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, Summit for Soldiers, Team Performance Institute LLC, The University of Cincinnati’s Office of Veterans Programs and Services, Tristate Veterans Community Alliance, Union Institute & University, Veterans Upward Bound, Volunteers of America, The Cincinnati VA Medical Center’s VITAL Program and OEF/OIF/OND Clinics. We’d also like to offer a special thank you to Trader Joe’s and Clyde Gray for their support. This project is made possible by these partnerships as well as funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and The John A. Schroth Family Charitable Trust, PNC Bank Trustee.
