Veterans Day 2010


Chancellor Block invites the campus community to honor Bruin veterans.

Please join me in honoring Bruin veterans during our annual UCLA Veterans Day ceremony at 10 a.m., Wednesday, November 10, in Wilson Plaza. Veterans Day is our opportunity to show our profound appreciation for those who have courageously defended our freedom through their military service, and this year we are especially grateful to our newest veterans — our fellow Bruins who have returned to UCLA after serving with honor in the United States military.

In commemoration of the 65th anniversary of the end of World War II, this year’s ceremony will include a special tribute to the UCLA alumni, staff and faculty who are World War II veterans. The ceremony will feature a flyover by F-22 Raptor fighter planes at approximately 10:05 a.m., and an expo providing information about veteran services and resources will follow the event.

To RSVP, please visit I look forward to seeing you there.
