The seventh annual CUAA Veterans Day Celebration happens on Tuesday, Nov. 11 beginning at 9 a.m. Day long festivities will happen on the University’s campus which will include a welcome reception for veterans and guests in the Field House, a flag dedication service, U.S. Coast Guard Helicopter Demonstrations, honorary veterans stars displayed and names read, and much, much more. The event wraps up at 5 p.m.
According Dr. Robert McCormick, event organizer and member of the CUAA faculty, the celebration is a way to pause and pay tribute to the members of the armed forces who have fought to preserve our nation and our freedom. McCormick himself served in the U.S. Army and understands what it means to serve and knows why Veterans Day is so important.
“It is a distinct honor to present an amazing day here at CUAA for not only veterans, but for faculty, staff, and students who demonstrate their servant leadership each and every day,” said Dr. McCormick.
The public is invited to attend the event and help prepare care packages for troop members overseas. There will also be student escorts available for those veterans who need assistance. For more information, contact Dr. McCormick at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-995-7391.
