This year, CBS Radio's ConnectingVets.com is celebrating Veterans Day through its first ever "Veterans Community Showcase," a three month, two-part program focused on honoring Veterans for everything they do both during and after military service. The showcase was designed to spotlight the efforts of Veterans in local communities. During the first phase of the program, which runs through September and October, ConnectingVets.com will accept public nominations of local Veterans online. An internal programming committee will then select and profile one Veteran each weekday from November 1 to Veteran's Day.

CBS Radio Washington, DC, Senior VP/Market Manager Steve Swenson said, "They are our neighbors and friends, brothers and sisters -- and each of them have an incredible story to share and should be celebrated for their selfless acts of service. We also think it's important to showcase companies that help educate, employ and assist Veterans in their daily life so there is awareness of what's available, and other companies may be inspired to offer similar programs."

The sites will also feature sponsored editorial content giving companies with dedicated Veterans' initiatives a unique chance to share the good work they do and praise their own employees, many of whom are Veterans themselves. University of Maryland University College and United Rentals will sponsor the inaugural "Veterans Showcase" alongside ConnectingVets.com sponsor Freedom Mortgage.
