Veterans Day at GW

Day Week to Remember
November 11 is Veterans Day, but the George Washington University is honoring veterans all week long. Programs like The Ribbon Project give members of the GW community a unique perspective of the lives of the university’s veteran and military members, and Behind the Scenes: Veterans Working on Capitol Hill gives GW student veterans an inside look at continuing service through politics.

A Prominent Place for Veterans
This Veterans Day marks the one-year anniversary of the new Veterans Memorial Park in Kogan Plaza.

Supporting Veterans, a GW Tradition
70 years ago, Don Balfour, BA ’45, became the first recipient of the G.I. Bill after WWII while studying at GW. Today, programs like the Yellow Ribbon Program (the successor to the G.I. Bill) and GW VALOR make GW accessible to veterans and their families and ensure future success both in and out of the classroom. Students like Emanuel Johnson come to GW to continue the service they began as members of the U.S. Armed Forces.

School of Nursing Launches Veterans Degree Program
A new Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) at GW will offer veterans a tailored road map to a new career in helping others. Veterans can receive academic credit for military training and experience and transition skills into a nursing career as part of GW’s new Veterans BSN.
