The CCAC Office of Military and Veterans Services would like to take a moment to reflect on Memorial Day weekend and the meaning of this holiday. Although it marks the unofficial start of summer for most of us, Memorial Day has a much more somber and poignant origin – it was founded as a day meant to remember, honor, and mourn the men and women who gave their lives in service to our country. Our office would like to take this opportunity to express our deep gratitude for the countless sacrifices of all of the past and present members of the U.S. Armed Forces, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice. We hope you find some time to reflect on the meaning of this holiday and we wish you safe, reverent Memorial Day Weekend.
Duquesne University's Office for Military and Veteran Students is hosting two virtual Open House events for students interested in continuing their education at Duquesne. For the link to either of these sessions, please refer to the email you recently received from our office or contact Jessica Wilson at 412.237.6503.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of Military and Veterans Services was a busy place; military-affiliated students would come in to our offices to discuss educational benefits, certify their enrollment with the VA, hang out in our lounges, or even just chat with our staff. Of course, everything has now shifted online so we thought we would take this opportunity to introduce ourselves (in case you haven’t met us in person already!) and put a face to our names. We hope you have a great Spring Semester!
The VA has compiled a list of nationally available Veterans Day discounts, meals, or other ways businesses and organizations want to give back to Veterans. These Veterans Day discounts, free meals and other programs are being shared so that Veterans, their families, caregivers, and survivors are aware of all resources available to them.
Due to COVID-19, some organizations are now offering discounts to Veterans all the time instead of their regular Veterans Day discounts.
