Veterans Day Celebration
The Veteran Services Center, in collaboration with the Student Union Activities & Advisory Board, recently hosted its annual Veterans Day celebration. Guest speaker Admiral Patrick Walsh headlined the event with a speech expressing what Veterans Day means to him. Other perspectives came from UT Dallas student veterans like Cary Ziegler and Vanessa Arias, who shared some of their personal experiences from serving in the military. During the event, a color guard presented the American flag and the National Anthem was performed. The ceremony closed with a trumpeter performance of “Taps.” While it is important to recognize veterans on this special day each November, the Veteran Services Center is a daily reminder of the University’s appreciation and support for its student veterans.
