American Veteran

Today, America has nearly 18 million living military veterans, from the “Greatest Generation” to men and women coming home from recent tours in Afghanistan and Iraq.  They join the now-silent ranks of American veterans reaching back to our earliest conflict, the Revolutionary War. 

American Veteran illuminates the veteran experience with a stunning range of voices from today and across the arc of American history.
