UT Veterans Invited to Commemorate Veterans Day Nov. 12

Faculty, staff, and students who are also military veterans are invited to sign a board commemorating Veterans Day. The board will be displayed on campus during the National Day of Remembrance on November 12 and other times throughout the year.

The project is a joint effort of Veterans at UTK, the student group for veterans; the Center for the Study of War and Society; and the Office of Veterans Affairs, part of the Office of the University Registrar.

The board will be displayed during the all-day ceremony on November 12, when the names of fallen service men and women will be read.

To sign the board, visit 209 Student Services Building anytime between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 30, through Friday, November 9.

Last year, UT joined in the National Day of Remembrance Project started by Eastern Kentucky University by having campus volunteers read the names of the more than 6,300 veterans who have died since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. This year, members of the community are invited to join in the reading of names—and to add the names of their loved ones who have died while serving in the military at any time in history.

Anyone interested in reading names and/or adding the name of a loved one who died while serving in the military is asked to e-mail Regina Lewellyn at rlewellyn@utk.edu.
