MTV puts the spotlight on young veterans
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.
