To our students, faculty, and staff,

Please join us this Veterans Day in thanking and honoring those who have worn the uniform. Their willingness to “stand the post” deserves our respect and gratitude.

To our Veterans, whether student, faculty, or staff - thank you for stepping up to protect our country.  As a fellow Veteran, I understand, first hand, the sacrifice and commitment that is required to serve in uniform.  And, your willingness to put your country, your mission, your unit, and your fellow citizens ahead of your own self-interests speaks volumes about your innate character.   It is an honor to be part of your Delta family.

To the families of those who have served or are still serving, it is important to recognize your contributions as well.  Your support and sacrifice make it possible for our service members to stay focused on the mission - a critical factor in making the United States military the most effective fighting force in the world.  I know it can be hard at times.  Just always remember – you are their most important inspiration! 

Very respectfully,

John Olsen
