The American Veterans Center has enlisted Terry Crews to host its annual American Valor Veterans Day special. American Valor: We Stand Together will see Crews guide viewers in paying tribute to the nation’s service men and women as well as front-line workers combating the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of this amazing event for another year,” said Crews. “We have some truly unbelievable stories that deserve to be recognized and shared, from our incredible service men and women, to the heroes working on the front lines of today’s fight against COVID-19.”

“In a truly challenging time, it is our honor to spotlight these men and women whose stories continue to unite us as Americans,” said Tim Holbert, Executive Director of the American Veterans Center. “Throughout our history, as today, America is strongest when we stand together, and these heroes of all generations and backgrounds are a powerful reminder that we’re all on the same team.”
