About the Project

Blue Chalk worked with GBH Studio Six to produce a ten-episode digital series for PBS Digital Studios. Each episode of “American Veteran: Keep It Close” tells the story of a U.S. military veteran and the special objects they carried during deployment and beyond. The episodes are published on the PBS Voices YouTube channel, programmed by PBS Digital Studios

“American Veteran: Keep It Close” is a digital companion series to the four-part PBS broadcast “American Veteran,” which will air nationally beginning October 26, 2021.
