The hourlong program, set to air Nov. 9 in connection with Veterans Day on Nov. 11, will highlight the emotional experiences of three women, two of them who were in the service, the other a caregiver to her husband who lost both legs in Afghanistan.
“It is an honor and a privilege to work with the First Lady and Dr. Biden to make this important program about the strength, courage and sacrifices made on behalf of men and women in uniform and their families. Our hope is that these stories will mobilize all of us to find ways to serve them, just as they have served us and this great nation,” stated Nancy Dubuc, president-CEO of Lifetime parent A+E Networks.
The special will also spotlight Joining Forces, the White House campaign to provide resources and support to veterans and their families. Veterans issues have been a primary focus for Obama and Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden.
