Raising awareness of the challenges facing our military members, veteran communities, and their families.

Embracing Our Military offers an on-going community-based dialog featuring special events, monthly programming and more to support and help educate the region about this multi-faceted population.

Additionally, WQPT PBS and its community partners connect the regional military community to resources; fostering an understanding of military life; examining the societal perception of soldiers and the wars they fight; highlighting regional veterans and their stories; and celebrating the accomplishments of the Rock Island Arsenal to the entire region.
