In our community, we strive to take care of each other, to honor each other’s bravery and sacrifices, and to look after each other when we’re in need. We are proud to count among us many veterans of the United States’ armed services. To recognize their service, I invite you to take part in UW Veterans Appreciation, Nov. 6-18, when our community will host a series of events across our three campuses.

These events include the annual Veterans Day Ceremony on Saturday, Nov. 11, where the UW will honor the 2017 Distinguished Alumni Veteran Award recipient, Raymond Emory, ’52, a veteran of World War II and advocate for efforts to identify the remains of service members lost during that war.

Beyond these events that pay special tribute to those who have served, the UW strives to support our veterans year-round, through the excellent work of our Student Veteran Life office and the many programs across our three campuses that support our student veterans and active-duty service members and their families.

The University of Washington is proud to recognize the thousands of veterans in our Husky family. We are deeply grateful to you for your service, and we thank all in the UW community who support our people in uniform.
