On Sunday, November 10th, 2013, Alan Alda and Joe Mantegna will host HOMEWARD BOUND, a live four-hour national telethon to support American veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

A number of stars will take part in the event, including Mark Harmon, Sean Murray, Pauley Perrette, Rocky Carroll, Michael Weatherly, and David McCallum (NCIS); Patti Austin, Jason Bateman, James Brolin, Michael Feinstein, Connie Francis, Jason Gould, Charles Hirsch, Gloria Loring, Marty Papazian, Lou Diamond Phillips, Kevin Spacey, Steve Tyrell, and Ben Vereen.
