Veterans Coming Home (Phase 2)

These stations serve as co-producers in a local-national content partnership with Kindling Group and coordinated by Wisconsin Public Television for a Veterans Coming Home digital docuseries, anchoring a digital-first content and engagement effort to help bridge America's military-civilian divide. Station work illuminates the nuanced, compelling and authentic lives of post-9/11 veterans, enriches the public's understanding of the role of veterans as assets in the community, and engages the public in a dialogue about supporting returning veterans through opportunity. KAET forms local partnerships and convene local events that engage veterans to discover, capture and contribute local content with diverse perspectives for the docuseries and digital impact campaign. Working closely with lead station WPT, these stations actively market the project in their communities, host visits from the national production team for co-production work, and produce at least five local content pieces for the VCH website.
