“Thank you for your service” is a common expression Americans use to show appreciation for those who have served. But what about going beyond the “thank you” for a greater show of support?
This Veterans Day, Cohen Veterans Network (CVN) is breaking down veteran stereotypes to promote a greater understanding about, and connection with, our veteran community. And in fact, dispelling veteran stereotypes is something that the overwhelming majority of veterans believe is important. Eight-in-ten (80%) veterans think it is important to understand that veterans/service members come from all walks of life/are a diverse group, according to the CVN Veterans Day Survey 2021.
Here, challenge what you think you know about veterans and find ways to go #BeyondTheThankYou for a more meaningful acknowledgement of their service.
Take our Veterans 101 Pop Quiz to test your knowledge and gain a better understanding of the veteran community.
