While the United States of America remains deeply divided following a very contentious presidential election, there is one thing that still binds the nation together: support and gratefulness for the members of the armed forces.
With Veterans Day drawing near, the History Channel is working with the stars of their upcoming series “Six” to celebrate those that have served their country. In a video, the cast led by Walton Goggins, speak to the importance of the “true stars of our armed forces” around the world, defending the nation’s freedom. “It’s an ongoing mission to honor those who have served and are currently serving,” they explain.
The actor, joined by co-stars including Edwin Hodge, Kyle Schmid, Barry Sloane and Juan Pablo Raba, offer their thanks to the troops in the video. “To the real men and women in uniform, on the front lines and at home, we say thank you,” they offer.
“Six” follows Navy SEAL Team Six through stories based on actual Navy SEAL missions. The team the show is based on is best known as the group that apprehended terrorist Osama bin Laden in 2011. As History explains, “the series authentically captures the inside world of America’s elite Special Operations unit — what these SEALs do, their personal lives, combat and the life-and-death decisions they make to protect and serve their country.”
The series premieres Wednesday, Jan. 18, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on History Channel.
