Veterans Forum is growing!
Veterans Forum started in August 2002, being taped by West Sound Community TV and being aired on Bremerton Kitsap TV. Those early years CDR Bob Gardner of American Legion Post 30 would faithfully open the doors to the Post to allow WSCTV and I in to tape VF Programs! When I had the opportunity to interview the award winning author/screenwriter of The Last Detail & Cinderella Liberty, (former Sailor) Darryl Poniscan, 4 years ago at the Bainbridge Island TV Studio; I was convinced by its Executive Director to continue taping VF at BITV. Now, I was in a real studio! The folks on BI Veterans Forum could watch VF and it received a very good response.
During the years Veterans Forum grew from Bremerton Kitsap & North Mason Co, to BI, Jefferson Co, Yakima Co, Pierce, King, Snohomish and Clark Counties. Veterans Forum & the recent Veterans Forum Magazine reach Two Million Cable Subscribers!
Please understand, that while I produce and host Veterans Forum, I HAVE NO CONTROL when individual studio's air VF or VF Magazine! Each PEG Channel is very different from the others, so they are not merely carbon copies of each other; there is NO continuity of policy between them. You can click on the TV Station Link on the left side of this page and check their schedule. If you don't see VF, hit the link to 'Contact Us' and get their phone number, so you may call & ask when VF & VFM will be on.
Two monthly TV Program for Military Veterans!
1)To inform & encourage Veterans to use their earned Veterans Benefits.
2)To encourage & promote Veterans to join a VSO.
3) To allow Vets to share their memories of their Military Experience.
