Hosted by Veteran Stacy Pearsall and co-produced with SCETV, After Action will highlight the stories of 21 veterans as they share their experiences of training, deployment and, most of all, life “after action.“ Focusing on shared values such as diversity, strength, commitment, generosity and resilience, After Action will seek to demystify the military experience, provide a platform for dialogue among military family members and preserve military stories, many of which have, to date, been left untold.
The After Action production crew started filming the show this week. Take a sneak peek behind the scenes below.
