Add a Military Veteran Tag
A veteran tag would allow the various veteran streaming communities to find each other, and assist each other better. Many veterans stream to help others fighting PTSD, trauma, and veteran suicide.
We’re really excited to announce that we now have tags for “Veteran” and “Disabled Veteran” along with more than 350 additional tags.
For more information, you can take a look at our blog post at https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2021/05/26/celebrate-yourself-and-your-community-with-350-new-tags/. Please continue to share ideas and feedback you have to UserVoice!
The camaraderie among military members is unmatched and adding this feature back would allow members to find and support one another. Gaming and streaming is and outlet for lots of members to decompress from the stresses of service.
In 2019, the VA released its National Veteran Suicide Prevention Annual Report, which stated that the suicide rate for veterans was 1.5 times the rate of non-veteran adults.
It’s imperative that we be able to discover one another easily and provide the necessary support to reduce these numbers as much as possible!
As someone who is active duty military this would be a great feature because across all branches there is just a way of connecting with another service member better than there is with someone else.
Twitch, you are about growth, community and engagement, what better tag than to let the VETERAN COMMUNITY have a way to be discovered as well! BRING THE VETERAN TAG PLEASE
When you are trying to be inclusive, but take away at the same time... Bring the Vet tag back please. It brings together our vets from all over the world. It gives them like people to help them through the dark days, and possibly saves lives. Our vets deserve better from Twitch!
I'm not a veteran, but we still should have this!
I second the "Veteran" tag.
As a VA RN a veteran's tag would be amazing! I love supporting those who provide us our freedoms, doing the duties the rest of us can't handle! Please provide them this opportunity! Vet's deserve this!
As a Veteran I would love to have an easier way to interact with my brethren on this platform.
im a Vet and i would use this tag every day without fail that i stream
Love this Idea, Veterans deserve a tag. I support with family and friends serving now.
I never got the chance to serve but know several veterans in the Twitch community. These folks need a way to easily find, connect and support each other. This connection may be the thing that saves them from becoming another statistic. Please do more than consider this request, make it a reality. Lives may depend on it.
As a vet it would be nice to be able to find people like me that can relate to me. There are tags for trivial stuff like beginner players and other as well as more specific ones for various communities. A large part of your community are veterans. Just a tip of a hat is all we are asking for.
As a son of a veteran and a friend of a few that stream, they definitely deserve a tag to help them find each other! no reason not too
Veterans deserve a tag. no reason why they dont have one already.
I'm all for this as long as Veterans are verified through some sort of ID verification (as someone said below in the comments) Also, this should have been a tag a long time ago! A lot of awesome Vet streamers out there, would love to connect with more!
love this idea
You have no reason not to add this
This absolutely needs to be done
