President, Provost join students in honoring veterans

Posted on Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

President Ben Allen and Provost Gloria Gibson recently joined Volunteers Tuesday and the newly-formed UNI Student Veterans Association to honor Americas' veterans by adding yellow ribbons to campus trees and handing out American flag pins to celebrate Veterans Day. 

Veterans Day is observed on November 11 each year, regard-less of the day of the week on which it falls. Veterans Day is a national holiday to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

After campus was decorated with ribbons, the students had an opportunity to make holiday cards for currently deployed troops overseas.
