Veterans Day Ceremony, November 9


To the Campus Community:

You are invited to join fellow Bruins at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, November 9, for our annual Veterans Day ceremony at Wilson Plaza. Each year, we take this time to celebrate the men and women who have courageously dedicated themselves to defending our nation by serving in the U.S. armed forces — and to recognize our UCLA faculty, students, staff and alumni who are veterans.

We are honored to be joined this year by two distinguished guest speakers: Marine Corps veteran Tess Banko, who serves as executive director of the UCLA/VA Veteran Family Wellness Center, and Marine Corps veteran Zeeshan Parvez, who is pursuing his Ph.D. in materials chemistry at UCLA.

The ceremony will be followed by a resource fair that offers information about UCLA’s many services and programs that support veterans. I also welcome you to visit the UCLA Veterans website to learn more about our partnerships with the West Los Angeles VA campus and our enduring commitment to veterans.

I hope to see you on Friday.
