The face of the American military is changing. Far fewer people serve today compared with a generation ago, and the percentage of Americans with military experience has fallen by more than half since 1980.
Meanwhile, the profile of those who serve is vastly different than it once was. Today’s troops are more diverse and face new challenges, both while they’re in uniform and after they leave the service.
American Homefront is a major public media initiative that reports on the lives of military personnel, veterans, and their families. Our long-form stories chronicle the challenges and successes of the military and veteran communities.
Our journalists visit bases to detail how American troops are working and living. We meet military families and veterans to learn about the policy issues that affect their lives. We hold public officials and agencies accountable for fulfilling their obligations to Americans who serve. We visit places that other media often ignore, and we give voice to those who are seldom heard.
