Good morning all!

I attended CBS Coffee with Veterans event a few weeks ago and was extremely proud to see a network take a stand with Veterans, we truly appreciate it.

Two questions:

Will Veterans will be included in future casting events for television such as the previous CBS Drama Diversity Casting Initiative or CBS Diversity Workshop, or can there be an exclusive event set up for Veterans?

Does CBS production in New York City attempt to contact Military Technical Advisers for NYC based shows similarly to how "SEALS" does in California? I have been on previous sets where a technical adviser may handle a whole "season or series" mostly script work but most of the time these advisers are not present to oversea wardrobe or on set activities.

Thank you!
