‘Gotham,’ ‘Jurassic World’ Honored for Portrayal of Veterans

Got Your 6 has selected the second batch of “6 Certified” projects to be honored for their normalizing portrayal of veterans, the org announced Tuesday.

Projects that received “6 Certified” status, which celebrates content for accurate depictions of military life, include summer blockbuster “Jurassic World” along with episodes of television shows from “Gotham,” “Madam Secretary,” “BoJack Horseman,” “Lone Target,” “This Old House” and “Triumph Games.”

The announcement was made at Got Your 6 Storytellers West, the first Los Angeles iteration of the org’s new bi-coastal event.

The “6 Certified” program launched earlier this year with First Lady Michelle Obama congratulating “American Sniper” and other projects for portraying “the complex journeys that our men and women in uniform endure.” The event was held to encourage industry execs and content creators to challenge stereotypical narratives of veterans as broken heroes and bridge the civilian-military gap.

“Through ‘6 Certified,’ Got Your 6 is countering the misconceptions about veterans that persist in popular media by elevating content that portrays veterans reasonably and accurately,” said Rob Gordon, President of Be The Change, the parent org of Got Your 6. “Our veterans, and their families, are civic assets for the nation. This latest group of ‘6 Certified’ projects is helping to advance a more reality-based and asset-focused narrative.”

To become “6 Certified,” a project must be selected by its review committee, which consists of key figures from the entertainment industry and the military.
