"Knowing how much this show means in the military makes me work extra hard to do justice to their stories and to tell those stories with dignity. I want to do right by them." — Jay Hernandez on his commitment to portraying veterans as three-dimensional human beings



"You hear so much about it in the news, but this is a conversation that considers different and divergent points.
