STARTING STRONG is a reality-based Army Television Program that takes interested and motivated civilians on a fast track, sneak peek into the life of The United States Army. The 10 episode series gives a rare, real behind-the-scenes look into Military Occupation Specialty, AKA Army Job, and the highly trained soldiers who are serving today and strives to honor those heroes who have since retired. This show is unlike any other on Television as one “prospect” is chosen from a pool of candidates to be embedded into the most highly-coveted positions on Army Posts across The United States. We learn what the Army has to offer them, what the prospect might have to offer The Army and what it takes to be successful in a specific MOS. Each week, we will meet a new potential recruit, “prospect”, Army Mentors, Battle Buddies and retired soldiers that will take them on a once in a lifetime journey. The prospect will face mental and physical challenges, specialized training and insight into Army life, which will ultimately lead to their decision on whether to stay a civilian or join the Army.
