Chris Pratt is leading a star-studded public service announcement for veterans, and PEOPLE has the exclusive first look.

Along with Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Harrison Ford, Sally Field, Jason Sudeikis, Gabourey Sidibe, Martin Sheen and many more celebs are joining forces to spread the word about Got Your 6, a program that helps integrate veterans back into their communities.

“Every year, a quarter million service members leave the military,” Pratt explains. “Their passion for service does not end when their uniforms come off. They are resilient, they are leaders, and they’re ready to serve again.”

“Got Your 6 is a campaign that unites nonprofit, Hollywood and government partners,” the program’s website states. “Got Your 6 believes that veterans are leaders, team builders and problem solvers who have the unique potential to strengthen communities across the country.”

With the help of celebs like those featured in the PSA, the campaign “works to integrate these perspectives into popular culture, engage veterans and civilians together to foster understanding, and empower veterans to lead in their communities.”

The phrase “Got Your 6” means “I’ve got your back” in military lingo. According to the program’s website, the term was made popular by World War I fight pilots, who referenced a pilot’s rear as the 6 o’clock position.
