UC Celebrates Veteran's Day

Veteran’s Day. Many of us view this single day as a time to be thankful for the men and women who served our country during times of war; a day for parades and events of remembrance. Some even know Veteran’s Day as an extra day out of the office.

With initiatives like the Veterans One Stop Center in University Pavilion and fundraising opportunities that assist veterans and ROTC cadets, UC keeps veterans in mind year round.

In a ceremony held on McMicken Commons on Nov. 9, veterans with ties to UC were honored for their service. Current members of UC’s Reserve Officers’ Training Corps Color Guard, 50 Air Force ROTC cadets and 50 Army ROTC Cadets stood in formation to be recognized during the ceremony.

As you remember those who served, remember those heading back to civilian life with goals to earn a college degree. No matter where you currently reside, you can honor your Proudly Cincinnati roots and help our veterans at UC through A Salute to Service gift.
