Veterans Channel captures “real stories, the stories that deserve to be heard”

Veterans Media Corporation (VMC) has launched a new digital broadcasting channel for Veterans.

The Veterans Channel is a one of a kind, 24/7, private, cloud broadcasting channel that offers real-time education and edification of men and women that serve in the CAF, First Responders, Veterans, and their families. 

“We are very excited to deliver ‘The Veterans Channel’ and its member privileges to the global veteran community and all members of the Armed Forces and First Responders. I encourage this network and all the organizations that support, to join the Veterans Channel to help us raise awareness and tell the stories of the men and women who have served,” said Marc Wicks MBE, director of global initiatives.

This channel is free and offers OnDemand and live movies and shows. It merely requires a profile to begin enjoying the features of the Veterans Channel. 

The channel also produces its own programming and includes docuseries’, show series, and discussions. The TVC also films special events, stream live, and air veteran-centric movie releases.

Co-founder and CEO of the Veterans Retreats Foundation (VRF) realized there was a need to unite veterans globally, and offer the level of support that the veteran community needed, and founded the Veterans Media Corporation (VMC), and the Veterans Channel in 2018 to act as a bridge to close the gaps. 

One of the VMC’s shows called Riding with Heroes is a program that showcases intimate veteran-to-veteran interviews that highlight their experiences. The show aims to showcase everyday heroes found in extraordinary circumstances that share their heroism and sacrifice to viewers. 

“We want to capture real stories, the stories that deserve to be heard,” said P.M. Trapper Crane, former Sergeant of the Canadian Armed Forces and host of Riding with Heroes. “There are so many individuals who are part of the armed forces, active members or veterans, who are everyday heroes and deserve to be recognized.”
