About We Belong Network
WBN is the future
for our veterans.
We Belong Network is a Digital platform that seeks to serve our nation's veterans their friends and families. We provide Resources, Information, and Entertainment that is relevant to the Urban based veteran community.
WBN was created by Richard C. Best, our CEO, Co-Founder, and Vietnam Veteran. He recalls the times when it was difficult for him to assimilate back into mainstream society.
He realized that while there was a multitude of services available for veterans, it was an overwhelming task for him to navigate through it all. Therefore, he created WBN to be that digital platform.
In conjunction with Susan Watson Turner, an Associate Professor of Music Multimedia Theatre and Dance Department at Lehman College. He partnered
with Susan Watson Turner to create an entity in WBN that commits to training veterans, and families and friends in digital multimedia production.
Our Community Partners
WBN develops original programming for national and international distribution. Our
team has produced a series of four episodes entitled Conversations from the Inside, and a narrative film entitled Rapid Deployment which screened in Berlin, Germany in May 2019.
In conjunction with Lehman College Office of Veteran Affairs, WBN employs three production-based apprentices who are training in the production fields; each supports the work of WBN alongside a professional. This will begin to build an internal production staff for the increased production activity.
