StoryCorps Marks Veterans Day
This Veterans Day, StoryCorps will honor the service and sacrifice of the military community by releasing new content from our Military Voices Initiative. This includes three new animated shorts, an hour-long radio special, and broadcasts on NPR’s Morning Edition and Weekend Edition Saturday.
The Military Voices Initiative provides a platform for veterans, servicemembers, and military families to share their stories. In doing so we honor their voices, amplify their experiences, and let them know that we—as a nation—are listening.
