The entertainment industry wants to show veterans that they've "got your six." With the backing of major studios, broadcast and cable networks and talent agencies, the Got Your 6 campaign-referencing a military expression meaning "I've got your back, and you've got mine"-will help U.S. veterans reintegrate into civilian life using skills acquired from their service. Celebrities including 30 Rock's Alec Baldwin and Tracy Morgan, NBC News' Brian Williams and talk show host Wendy Williams will appear in public service announcements, the first of which premiered May 10 with the campaign's launch on its Web site. Got Your 6 will also be integrated into various TV and film scripts and create original digital content.
