SALUTE TO VETERANS

Take Action

The Facts

  • There are 1.9 million children, ranging in ages from newborn to 18 years old, who are the children of our military- 1.3 million of whom are school-aged. Source: www.ourmilitary.mil/our-military-families

  • In early 2014, there were nearly 50,000 homeless veterans on the streets of America. Though the lowest number since stats have been kept on this population, there is still work to be done. Source: Department of Housing and Urban Development

  • Young veterans will soon make up the largest cohort in the veteran population. Post-9/11 veterans and service members already outnumber World War II Veterans 6 to 1. In 2015, Gulf War era veterans and post-9/11 veterans will overtake Vietnam era veterans, and the majority of post-9/11 veterans are between the ages of 21 and 34.

HONORING OUR MILITARY COMMUNITY

In recognition of Veterans Day, USA Network presents a special "Salute to Veterans" week kicking off on Sunday, November 9 with a special 10-episode NCIS marathon airing 1-11PM ET. The event is hosted by COVERT AFFAIRS star Chris Gorham, who plays Auggie Anderson, a CIA operative who was blinded while serving in Iraq.

As part of the effort, USA has also teamed up with organizations that provide crucial support and resources to military members, veterans and their families, including Easter Seals, GotYour6, the USO and Operation Mend.

Throughout the week, USA will continue the "Salute to Veterans" theme by airing the original PSAs both on Veterans Day, Tuesday, November 11, as well as during a brand new episode of COVERT AFFAIRS, airing Thursday, November 13 at 10pm ET, directed by Chris Gorham.
