The Harlem Hellfighters' Great War-The all-black regiment of the 15th NY National Guard was the most decorated American unit in World War I and served 191 days, the longest term of service. These soldiers hoped their service would allow them to be seen as full citizens. Instead, they were forced to reckon with discrimination and more when they returned. This documentary tells their story.

Brothers in Arms--This documentary explores the relationship and experiences of a group of American soldiers--including Senator John Kerry--who fought side by side in the Vietnam War.

Veterans Coming Home--This series of documentaries explores veterans reintegrating into home life. 

The Forgotten War--This program tells the story of Korean War veterans who returned to Korea to see the impact their actions had on Korea; viewers will also learn about the ongoing tensions between North and South Korea.
