Partially filmed at the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial in Washington, D.C., the documentary hosted and narrated by actor, Vietnam veteran and Hollywood military adviser Dale Dye — is a chronological look back at America’s military engagements from World War I to today. The film focuses on how DAV responded to the emerging needs of disabled veterans and their families during each conflict.
“We feel privileged to partner with Sinclair, an organization truly passionate about supporting our nation’s veterans,” said DAV National Commander Andy Marshall. “The Battle Never Ends is a testament to the accomplishments made on behalf of disabled veterans over the last 100 years, and it’s a special way to recognize the service and sacrifices of America’s veterans this Veterans Day.”
The “Sinclair Cares: Supporting All Veterans” partnership urges Sinclair viewers to learn how to volunteer and support veterans in their communities.
