American Forces TV Network Survey

As many of you know, I (Stacy) am writing a cultural history of the American Forces Television Network. As part of that endeavor, I’m looking for a few good persons who have watched the service while deployed (or while accompanying someone deployed) to fill out a quick survey (10-15 minutes) about their recollections.

If you have you watched the American Forces Television Network overseas and would like to participate, please click this link:

If you have questions about the survey or would like to be interviewed in more depth for the study, please contact Stacy Takacs (

I would also appreciate your help circulating this call for survey participants. Please share with your networks, friends, family, or community organizations, especially veterans organizations. Thank you!


**IRB #AS1748. For questions about your rights as a participant, contact the Office of University Research Compliance, Oklahoma State University, at 405-744-3377 or email**
