Thousands Celebrate Veterans For Entire Month at Liberty University

In continuing with a time-honored tradition, Liberty University is holding Military Appreciation Month throughout November with a series of events and recognitions celebrating veterans and active military service members, including many among its own ranks, from online and residential students and faculty and staff to alumni and friends of the university who have been called to serve their country.

What was once a one-week celebration on Liberty’s campus has now turned into a monthlong event, with activities ranging from fitness challenges, military appreciation athletics events, a memorial race, a special Convocation, and a Veterans Appreciation Reception.

“We at Liberty University are so incredibly proud of the many service members, veterans, and military families who are part of our Liberty community,” said Emily Foutz, director of Liberty’s Office of Military Affairs. “It is an honor to carry on this university tradition each November to recognize their service and sacrifice during Military Appreciation Month. These men and women are a vital part of our Liberty family.”

The first 3,000 fans received a free camouflage hat, and Liberty Football recognized all members of the U.S. military throughout the game against Old Dominion. The Flames continued their undefeated start to the season, defeating the Monarchs 38-10 in front of a crowd of 21,481 at Williams Stadium.

Last academic year, Liberty University had the privilege of supporting more than 40,000 military-affiliated students, including active service members, veterans and military/veteran spouses. Read the full story and check out some amazing photos by clicking here.
