Veterans Week 2020

UCSD Veterans Week is a campus-wide, awareness and appreciation campaign to recognize our veterans and celebrate their contributions to our campus and community. 

Veterans Day, which is on November 11th of every year, is a federal holiday to honor and express gratitude to our military veterans, acknowledge their sacrifices in defense of our country and freedoms, and recognize their contributions to our nation. It is an honor given to the living, which is different from Memorial Day in May, which honors the fallen (many people get these holidays confused).

Below are ways to show appreciation by participating in our virtual campaigns, zoom backgrounds, and information for upcoming events.
