American Veteran: The Reckoning (S1EP4 PBS Tues 16 Nov 2021)



"The Reckoning: Those who went into the service and those who did not, we are two different realities," a veteran decides. But there are differences from veteran to veteran.  Some like "Thank you for your service"; others wonder if the thanks are just "bumper-sticker deep."  Veterans reflecting on their service ask how we – veterans and civilians – can move America forward together.  Hosted by J. R. Martinez, Iraq War Army veteran, actor, and motivational speaker.
