Discovery Education, in partnership with Discovery Inc., has announced “Voices of U.S.,” a virtual field trip series featuring U.S. Rep. Mikie Sherrill along with Iowa Senator Joni Ernst. The special will air on Nov. 10 at 1 p.m.

“I could not be more proud to share my experiences as a veteran and in public service with so many students through Discovery Education’s virtual field trip series,”  Sherrill said in an announcement from Discovery. “The opportunities I’ve had to serve have been a privilege, and it is incredible to see so many young people interested in public service. Thank you to Discovery Education and Discovery, Inc. for bringing together all of the presenters for this project, and for honoring Veterans Day in such a fitting way for Discovery’s student audience.”

The series is designed to engage upper elementary and middle school students in a variety of topics related to veterans and public service and support greater student agency. It will feature military veterans and/or active-duty members who will share personal stories about their military experiences and explain why they chose to serve their country; highlight historic locations symbolizing and amplifying the concepts of service, honor and duty; and encourage students to consider ways they can also act and serve their communities.

The series will premiere through the Discovery Education website, DiscoveryEducation.com
