Bill Rausch has been tapped as the executive director of Got Your 6.
A U.S. Army veteran, Rausch will lead the organization’s efforts to increase positive and accurate portrayals of veterans in popular culture, which include the 6 Certified and Got Your 6 Storytellers initiatives.
Rausch most recently served as political director for Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America.
“It’s an honor to join the Got Your 6 team, as the work of our organization and coalition is needed now more than ever,” he said in a statement.
The news comes nearly a month after Got Your 6 announced its second round of “6 Certified” programs, a designation given to television series and movies that promote positive portrayals of veterans. Recipients include Fox’s Gotham, Netflix’s Bojack Horseman and CBS’ Madam Secretary.
