PCN to Air New Series to Honor Veterans from WWII Through the Cold War
PCN will begin celebrating Memorial Day a week early as the network prepares to debut its new series, “Voices of Veterans.” The series will pay tribute to those brave men and women that have served our country to preserve our freedom. PCN will premiere this special new series beginning Friday, May 20 at 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. The network will continue the series on Saturday, May 21 and Sunday, May 22 at 2:00 p.m. Encore presentations will also air during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

While the network’s award-winning series, “World War: In Their Own Words” concentrated on the personal wartime experiences of veterans serving during World War II, “Voices of Veterans” expands the oral histories to include those from World War II, Korean and Vietnam wars as well as those who served during the Cold War.

Since 2002, PCN has gathered more than 300 hours of discussions with Pennsylvania veterans from all branches of the armed services. The series has gained national attention from veterans’ groups and the National Veterans’ History Project in Washington, D.C. To date, PCN has donated over 150 interviews with state World War II veterans to the National Veterans’ History Project as a means of historic preservation and educational use today as well as for generations to come.

The list of the servicemen and servicewomen, along with airtimes, that will be featured as part of the “Voices of Veterans” series is available at www.pcntv.com.

PCN is a nonprofit, noncommercial news organization created and supported by cable television companies. PCN receives no state or federal funding. Network programming is distributed on more than 150 cable systems in Pennsylvania serving more than 10 million Pennsylvanians in 3.3 million homes.
