Fri, 11/11: The Warfighters
There is no better way to honor our returning military on Veterans Day than by listening to, and sharing, their stories. That is exactly what The Warfighters allows you to do, with multiple airings starting in the early evening on the History Channel. Coming from Lone Survivor director Peter Berg, the show is largely made by veterans, with over 90 veterans participating in the production. Driven by first-person accounts, the series chronicles recent U.S. Special Operations Forces missions in the global war on terror, with each getting its own episode. Since fellow veterans conduct the interviews, the one-on-one conversations are remarkably candid and impactful.
