American Veteran

Episode 1: The Crossing

Season 2021  Episode 1

“There is a very stark line between before boot camp and after boot camp,” a veteran recalls. As recruits take the oath to serve, they leave the civilian world to become a soldier, sailor, marine, airman or woman. This is the start of their transformation. Hosted by TV host and former Marine Drew Carey.
