VIDEO: Taylor Swift, Kenny Rogers & More Featured in GOT YOUR 6 Veterans Day Message
Taylor Swift, Florida Georgia Line, Kenny Rogers, Cassadee Pope and more have joined together to celebrate our nation's servicemen and women with a special message for Veterans Day, created through the entertainment industry-backed veterans campaign, Got Your 6. Check it out below!
Got Your 6 held a number of initiatives to celebrate Veterans Day, including a partnership with HISTORY on their "Take a Veteran to School" program, where Got Your 6 brought post-9/11 veterans into classrooms across the nation and a veteran speaking conference at Google in NYC called "Got Your 6 Storytellers," to showcase the innovations of veterans making a substantive impact in the civilian world. The goal of the Got Your 6 campaign is to bridge the civilian-military divide by advancing the conversation in America surrounding veterans and military families so that they are perceived as leaders and civic assets. In the military, the expression "Got your six," means I've got your back. It refers to the "6 o'clock position" as the rear of a military formation. It also stands for loyalty and cooperation. The Got Your 6 campaign unites the entertainment industry with expert nonprofit organizations that focus on veterans and military families.
