Veteran Advocates.

The VHVtv episode, Veteran Advocates, was created on Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2016. Vets Helping Vets TV, VHVtv, returned to the MidPeninsula Media Center in Palo Alo, CA for our latest program about veteran advocacy. These are stories of individuals who volunteer their time, energy and efforts to make a difference in the lives of other veterans. They are wonderful examples of community service.

Some people do this by volunteering and being active in a Veteran Service Organization such as the American Legion, AMVETS and the Vietnam Veterans of America.

Carolann Wunderlin is the American Legion District 13 Women Veterans Outreach coordinator in Santa Clara County and spends a lot of her free time encouraging women veterans to join and become active in the American Legion. More women serve in the military now than ever before and can even serve in combat. These are unsung heroes. This segment of the veteran population does not always get the recognition they deserve for their military experience.

We introduce you to 3 guests, in the Media Center studio, that are making a huge impact for veterans in their community.
