Dear faculty, staff and students,

This Veterans Day, I encourage you to set aside a few moments to remember and honor those who have served our country in the Armed Forces. I personally want our veterans and active service men and women, as well as their families, to know how much we appreciate their service and sacrifices for the freedoms we all enjoy.

At UW-Stevens Point, we commemorate Veterans Day in numerous ways.

  • A Veterans Day ceremony, with the ROTC Color Guard. If you were not able to attend the ceremony, you may see my message to veterans.

  • The Brewhaus is offering free mugs to service members and veterans.

  • The University Store is providing 10 percent discount coupons; pick up your coupon at the Veterans Club office, room 70D, DUC.

  • The University Store is also sponsoring a “Change for Change” donation campaign with proceeds going to the American Legion’s Veteran’s Assistance program.

  • The University Store has a “Thank a Veteran” banner available for all members of our community to sign.

  • Dining and Summer Conferences is providing a complimentary military student luncheon, on November 21, in the Encore Room of the DUC.

Educating veterans is an important part of our mission at UW-Stevens Point. For the fourth consecutive year, UW-Stevens Point is recognized as a 2014 Military Friendly School® by G.I. Jobs for its commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students. G.I. Jobs lists the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans and spouses as students and ensuring their success on campus.

Please take a moment today to say thank you to all of our faculty and staff members, students and alumni who have served our country, as well as those who have supported them in service.

Remember ­– freedom isn’t free.

 

Bernie L. Patterson, Chancellor
