Veterans Week 2013
In 2013, the Office of VALOR Student Services hosted a series of events for Veterans Week. Our theme this year was "Celebrating 70 Years of GW Veterans". The events ran from November 4th to November 11th. Whether you're a veteran, dependent, military personnel, or just a student, our events were open to the entire GW community. We had everything from a panel discussion with veterans and journalist, wreath laying ceremonies, a city-wide search for rubber ducks, and a grand celebration to honor our veterans and their commitment to service and to GW.
For details about each event, please see below.
