As Veterans Day cames around to honor our staff and our students who are currently serving or have served in the U.S. military ULM held the annual Veterans Appreciation Ceremony.

During the ceremony Nick Bruno and Major General Joanne Sheridan presented each active member and the veterans who are associated with ULM with a red, white and blue ribbon.

In this event the goal was to show our appreciation by acknowledging their brave acts.

Diamond Hines said,” I am so proud that our school takes time to recognize these heroic people through a ceremony and a lunch. This is a token of our appreciation to them on a day they are honored.”

Even after all this time our sons and daughters are still called to war to defend and support our country.

This is a way that our university can give thanks and recognize those who were selfless enough to sacrifice so much by putting their life on the line.

Grad student, Chelsea Wyatt, felt privileged to be able to attend the ceremony to show her thanks to the veterans.

“It is so pleasing to see that our school takes the time to recognize our staff and faculty along with our students who serve. It’s was nice to show the admiration our gratefulness by reflecting over all of their brave actions.”
