Veterans’ history and needs to extend beyond Veterans Day, of course. The Library of Congress invites public participation in the Veterans History Project. Veteran Brian McGough describes ways to help veterans after Veterans Day. Mark these and other ways to honor and thank the veterans who have served the United States.
On Veterans Day we recognize veterans and all of those who have offered military service. VSU has an Office of Veterans Affairs to assist Veterans in finding success at VSU.
