Factsheet ‘Veterans on appreciation and policy’

With the Dutch veterans’ policy the Ministry of Defence seeks, among other things, to increase public appreciation for veterans. Based on the public opinion figures on veterans (see the Public Opinion on Veterans fact sheet) and reporting on veterans in the media (see Veterans and the Media fact sheet) it could be argued that the policy has succeeded on this point. However, the situation as regards veterans’ sense of appreciation and what their feelings are about the veterans’ policy is not yet clear.
