Remembering Those Who Serve
Among this week's TV fare that recognizes those who have served their country:
ARLINGTON: FIELD OF HONOR
Wednesday at 8 p.m. on PBS
On the eve of Veterans Day, this National Geographic special focuses on the final resting place of presidents and patriots.
The national shrine, which marked its 140th anniversary this year, began as a potter's field, but has since become the burial grounds for President John F. Kennedy, the unknown soldiers, 3,000 freed slaves, and the crew of the space shuttle Challenger.
The program reports on the daily rituals of the cemetery, and includes archival footage of the heroes buried there.
LAST LETTERS HOME:
VOICES OF AMERICAN TROOPS
FROM THE BATTLEFIELDS
Thursday at 9 p.m. on HBO
This poignant Veterans Day documentary offers the last written words to their families from 10 soldiers -- eight men and two women, ranging from 19 to 51 years old -- before their deaths during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
From the soldiers' hometowns in 10 states, the family members read aloud their loved ones' moving letters, some of them powerful, complex and even poetic.
To reach as many viewers as possible, the program, a project of HBO and the New York Times, will be available to most cable households, not just HBO subscribers.
A 128-page companion book, with a foreword by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), was just published by Life Books. HBO Video will release a DVD in 2005 that will include more special features. Proceeds from the book and DVD will go to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, which provides grants to the families of military personnel who have died in the Iraq war.
