This Veterans Day, Monday, Nov. 11, the Veteran & Military Resource Center and Student Veterans of UNM – along with the Navy, Army and Air Force ROTC units – will host a Veterans Day Celebration and Remembrance at 10 a.m. in the UNM Alumni Memorial Chapel. A reception will follow in the Alumni Chapel Garden.

UNM President Stokes will offer opening remarks at the celebration followed by a recognition of fallen UNM service members as well as reflections on Veterans Day from various community members.
