Lidia Celebrates America: Holiday for Heroes

Sat, 12/15/2018 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

In the uplifting special, Lidia Celebrates America: Holiday for Heroes, Lidia meets with veterans who reflect on their service. Each discusses their longing to be reunited with family during holidays, the challenges and sacrifices of their work, and the pride they take in having defended our country. Together, they create a distinct image of the diversity of the United States military.

For most, the holiday season is a time of celebration, spending time with family and friends, observing age-old traditions and enjoying favorite foods. For members of the military, the holidays can be particularly emotional, especially when they are stationed thousands of miles away from home, or are overcoming injuries from their service. Lidia Celebrates America: Holiday for Heroes airs Saturday, December 15 at 12 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
