Celebrating our Veterans and Active-duty Military

Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students,

On Veterans Day, we celebrate, honor, and remember the dedicated service and sacrifice of our veterans and active-duty military.

At the University of Redlands, we have a community of 100 active-duty military and veterans enrolled in the college and schools, in addition to our faculty, staff, and alumni who serve or have served. I hope the rest of the Bulldog community can join me in thanking these individuals by participating in our Veterans Day Notes of Appreciation campaign, sponsored by Military and Veteran Services.

As a member of a military family, I know the profound sacrifice involved in this service—the time separated from cherished family members, the holidays, celebrations, and other milestones missed, the challenges with moving, and the personal toll it can take.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to all who have selflessly served our nation and the families who have stood by their side. Your contributions are deeply appreciated.
