MTV puts the spotlight on young veterans

by Kristin Sample, posted Jul 3rd 2008 9:43AM
True Life logo for MTVMTV continues its commitment to inspire young people to get out there and vote. As part of the Choose or Lose campaign, on July 4th MTV2 will honor the millions of young men and women who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The day-long programming event will include exclusive messages from both Senator McCain and Senator Obama. The programming block will not only pay tribute to the sacrifice of these young soldiers, but also elevate their issues in light of the 2008 Presidential campaigns.

The evening block includes:

6:00 p.m. Iraq Uploaded
6:30 p.m. True Life: I Live in Iraq
8:30 p.m. True Life: I'm Shipping Out
9:30 p.m. True Life: I'm Coming to America
10:30 p.m. True Life: I'm a Civilian Again

If you miss these shows on the Fourth, I'm sure they will air in countless re-runs. This sounds like a great idea on the part of MTV. The network has always been attentive to young voters and I think it's great that they are putting the young vets in the spotlight. I'm especially interested in the show that tackle what's it's like to come back home after being overseas.

Choose or Lose, not quite as threatening as Vote or Die. Occasionally, MTV actually does something noteworthy besides the continual plunge into the pit of worthless, mind-numbing trash "reality" shows. Hopefully, MTV will inform some people who otherwise haven't been paying attention.
