ARLINGTON, Va.--()--This fall, PBS will highlight the history of our nation’s military men and women with programs that showcase personal stories and impactful events. The centerpiece, premiering on Veterans Day, Tuesday, November 11, 2014, 9:00-11:00 p.m. ET, is NAVY SEALS – THEIR UNTOLD STORY. The documentary recounts the ticking-clock missions of the “Commandoes of the Deep” through firsthand accounts, never-before-seen footage and personal recollections. Admirals, master chiefs, clandestine operators, demolitioneers and snipers reveal how U.S. Navy SEALs morphed into the world’s most admired commandoes. Actor Gary Sinise, who has dedicated himself to veterans’ causes and supporting the troops in active service, narrates.

“PBS is featuring these programs as a way to educate the public about our military history,” said Beth Hoppe, Chief Programming Executive and General Manager of General Audience Programming at PBS. “Airing as part of the PBS Stories of Service initiative this November and throughout the next year, the programs will delve deeply into some of the life-altering missions that changed the course of our nation, and will provide viewers with a better understanding of the men and women who stood on the front lines.”
