Americans at War is a signature program of the U.S. Naval Institute that has engaged national audiences through poignant and personal portrayals of the war experiences of America's men and women in uniform. Individual veterans are presented in a series of 90-second short stories — powerful tales that inspire pride and patriotism. The Naval Institute, the benchmark publisher of naval and maritime books and magazines for more than 130 years, is documenting the American war experience for a diverse audience and honoring the strength, character, leadership, perseverance, and sacrifice of America’s heroes.
The U.S. Naval Institute, a non-profit organization, honors the heritage of military service and the personal sacrifices of individual heroes through the Institute's unparalleled photo collection and library, professional books, Proceedings magazine and Naval History magazine, oral histories and videos.
This series is educating a new generation of young men and women, and honors our nation's heroes who have sacrificed so much.
