NC State is making great strides in supporting its many veterans and active military. New developments in military affairs will be coming very soon; meanwhile, please make note of the following Veterans Day activities scheduled for this week.

Veterans Invited to Sign Commemorative Banner

NC State’s military veterans are invited to sign their names on a commemorative 2016 banner that will hang in Talley Student Union on Veterans Day. Stop by the table in the Talley lobby on Monday, November 7, 2016 from 1:00-4:00 p.m.

Fourth Annual Salute to Veterans Flag Display

For the fourth year, the Student Veterans Association and Staff Senate have displayed over 1,000 flags in the Court of North Carolina. This year, the flags will be out for two weeks, from November 1-14, 2016. Stop by and see the breathtaking display and take a quiet moment to honor all veterans.

The ROTC Programs along with other members of the NC State community are running a 5K the morning of Veterans Day in honor of the service members who have come before us.
