At the National Geographic Society in Washington, D.C. on Friday, Ebersol, Cooper and Mrs. Obama launched the 6 Certified campaign from the Got Your 6 organization, which aims to lobby for accurate representation of troops who've returned from the frontlines.

Ebersol, who recently partnered with Got Your 6, told People, "The media tends to say, 'They're victims, or they're heroes.' People see these very extreme depictions of hero or martyr or victim. When you normalize the view, it really affects the public perception, and it leads to positive and powerful movements."
