A Salute to Veterans

Dear Members of the A&M-San Antonio Community:

Today, we join the nation in commemorating the sacrifice of our servicemen and women through the observance of Veterans Day.

Being a Military Embracing University in Military City USA reflects our unique perspective and keen awareness of veteran service and sacrifice. Our military presence on campus is noteworthy as approximately 17 percent of our students are military-connected. November is Military Family Appreciation Month and we have had a plethora of events to express our immense gratitude for the military community, and today we will continue to honor to our nation's heroes.

I invite you to join us for our Veterans Day Ceremony today at 11 a.m. in the Patriots' Casa's Ceremony Room, where we will hear from one of our veteran leaders, Dr. Bill Spindle, VP of Business Affairs and CFO. The ceremony will be followed by a veteran's lunch at noon, sponsored by the Military Affairs Department for students, faculty and staff who have served in our armed forces.

On behalf of the University, we remember the loved ones of those who gave their life in service to our country.  I thank every veteran and their families for their service and valor. I wish you all a happy Veterans Day.



Dr. Cynthia Teniente-Matson
