Veteran Entertainment Television (VET Tv) will be on-site at the 103rd American Legion National Convention Aug. 29-Sept. 1, 2022 in Milwaukee. The streaming service dedicated to authentic storytelling of veterans by veterans will report on the most pressing and timely issues facing America's veterans and their families.
VET Tv's coverage will focus on employment and transition, The American Legion's efforts to shape legislation favorable to veterans and their families, and suicide prevention - with special attention on the new Be the One campaign. With dozens of key decision-makers, policy experts and national leaders attending the convention, VET Tv will be positioned to provide their veteran audience with information they need to know.
“We're truly excited to help The American Legion reach a wider and more diverse audience, especially our active and engaged post-9/11 community," said Waco Hoover, VET Tv's chief executive officer. “With everything the Legion has done for veterans across the nation, we really want to do our part to make sure the younger generation understands the impact the Legion has made in support of those who've given so much in defense of America.”
“The American Legion is known for tackling the most important issues facing veterans,” said Legion chief marketing officer Dean Kessel. “We're excited to have VET Tv at the convention covering topics our members feel are important and essential to every veteran in America.”
In addition to content created at the convention, VET Tv will offer a free one-month trial of their streaming service to every member of The American Legion in the run-up and aftermath of the meetings. The promo code is LEGION22.
