The Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes would appreciate your station or network’s participation in airing its recently produced TV public service announcements (PSAs).

PSA #2: Featuring Army Sgt. Mary Herrera
The second set of PSAs feature retired U.S. Army Sgt. Mary Herrera, who shares her story about being wounded in combat and then ﬁnding a way to continue her service with the Coalition’s assistance. The videos highlight how Herrera’s work with other wounded troops helped her to process her injury.
PSA #3: Featuring Military Couple, Ashlee and J.D. Williams
The third set of PSAs highlight how the Coalition’s programs not only help a severely wounded or disabled veteran with their basic needs, but also offer assistance to the veteran’s spouse or caregiver.
