Every year, the Slippery Rock University community gathers to honor service members in our community. SRU's Veterans Day begins with breakfast, followed by the official service at the Veterans Memorial in front of Russell Wright Alumni House.
Thanks to the overwhelming support from the Slippery Rock University community and the efforts of the SRU chapter of the Student Veterans of America (SVA), we have been able to award two service dogs, Justice and Gordon, to SRU Student Veterans in the last two years. This year we will meet Carl, a labradoodle who will be awarded to a third SRU Student Veteran.
Our hope is to award one trained service animal to one student veteran every year at the Veterans Day Ceremony. More than 100 students at SRU identify as veterans.
Help us continue this new tradition and show your support and appreciation for our veterans' service this Veterans Day.
