A challenge for returning veterans is bridging the divide between the military world and the civilian world. But Hollywood is trying to help out with a public awareness campaign called Got Your 6, a program that promotes employment for returning veterans.

What makes it different from similar campaigns is that it has the financial might of the major film studios, who publicize veteran-related issues through efforts such as public service announcements.

In addition, other entertainment companies like Disney have a made a big push toward hiring veterans. 

Got Your 6's managing director, Chris Marvin, joins the show to explain what Got Your 6 hopes to do for veterans.
