Our partners at University of Maryland University College (UMUC) will honor those who served with a special Veterans Day commemoration.
Connecting Vets will carry the event live from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST. on our stream and below.
The highlight of the ceremony will be the dedication of the university’s ballroom in honor of Gen. John W. Vessey, Jr. (U.S. Army, Ret.) — UMUC’s most distinguished alumnus. Gen. Vessey was a 1963 graduate of UMUC, and the 10th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Also during this event, UMUC will present its “Student of the Year” award.
UMUC is celebrating its 70th anniversary of serving the armed forces since 1947. More than 50,000 service members are enrolled through 140 locations worldwide.
