COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The University of Maryland continues its long-standing tradition of honoring its veteran community of faculty, staff and students by hosting its annual Veterans Week celebration.

The week will be filled with celebrations, community service, interactive and fun activities, as well as a variety of social events. The full list of events can be found here.

A special program on Monday, Nov. 11 from 12:30-2 p.m. will take place at the university's Memorial Chapel. It will be a service to honor veterans of the UMD community, and others who have served our nation proudly. The program will feature remarks from UMD President Wallace Loh and Vice President for Student Affairs Linda Clement; inspirational talks from student, faculty and staff veterans; performances by the Mighty Sound of Maryland and MannerMusik; and the opportunity to walk the Memorial Chapel's garden labyrinth in honor of a veteran. A garden lunch also will be served.

"It is important that we remember the service and outstanding contributions of these individuals to the nation and our community," says UMD Veterans Day Planning Committee Chair Denise McHugh, Memorial Chapel coordinator. "We are thrilled and honored to continue the tradition of honoring the service of our Veterans through this event and other activities on campus."
