President Patrick F. Leahy Ed.D., addressed the University community on the importance of Veterans Day, via email on Wednesday, Nov. 11.
“At the 11th hour, on the 11th day, in the 11th month of the year, we Americans pause and recognize our men and women in uniform – past and present – who have defended our freedom and constitutional rights,” Leahy wrote. “On this Veterans Day 2020 all of the members of the Monmouth University community join me in thanking them for their service to our country.”
“Today, especially, we thank all of the veterans who are part of Monmouth University, including the students, faculty, staff, and alumni whose public service continues to enhance the character of our community,” Leahy wrote. “In recent years our veterans have inspired new academic and outreach efforts including: our Military Bridge Program; a long collaboration with Frontline Paper; and the Coming Home Project, grounded in our School of Social Work. These are initiatives at Monmouth of which I am very proud. Please join me in thanking our men and women in the armed forces whose heroism protects our great nation. May their selfless acts inspire our own.”
