Go Beyond the ‘Thank You’
The most common gestures toward veterans and service members this time of the year is a ‘Thank you for your service’ at the coffee shop or grocery store, or maybe flying a flag to show your support. But has the phrase ‘Thank you for your service’ become so common that it has begun to feel empty? Cohen Veterans Network was interested to dive deeper into honoring veterans and ask veterans themselves how they feel about the phrase ‘Thank You For Your Service’, or what can civilians do and say to honor all who have served.
The CVN Veterans Day Survey 2019 collected responses from 2,019 civilians, active duty, and veterans to find out deeper and more meaningful ways to honor Veterans Day and our service members every other day of the year. Hear what respondents and our own CVN veteran team members had to say about honoring Veterans Day.
Watch CVN staff from around the country discuss Veterans Day and how to go “Beyond the Thank You.”
The CVN Veterans Day Survey 2019 was conducted online within the United States by The Harris Poll on behalf of Cohen Veterans Network from October 10-14, 2019 among 2,019 U.S. adults ages 18 and older, among whom 218 are U.S. Military Veterans Or Currently Serving. This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.
