A new video journal probing the experiences of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families as they return from the front is set to premiere tonight.
"In Their Boots" is an online-only video series, hosted by Iraq veteran Jan Bender. Scheduled to stream from the show's website each Wednesday evening, the program will look each week at the story of an Iraq or Afghanistan veteran, and their families.
The webcast will also include live discussion between video subjects and viewers after the weekly documentary segments, followed by "in-depth analysis" of issues facing veterans, in order to "raise awareness and offer solutions for our service-members, military families, and veterans."
"In Their Boots" premiers tonight at 7:00 p.m. Eastern time at intheirboots.com. More videos and previews at the project's website.
The show is funded by a grant from the Iraq Afghanistan Deployment Impact Fund (IADIF) and produced by Brave New Foundation.
