Wright College Celebrates Veterans Day

Wright College’s 2014 Veterans Day Celebration drew more than 100 participants who honored the contributions and sacrifices of the military veterans in the Wright Community and across the nation. Congratulations on a job well done to: Wright’s Student Veterans Association members, Veterans Services Specialist Ed Davis, Student Activities staff and the Student Government Association.

Please enjoy some of the images from yesterday’s events and activities (click on images to enlarge), as well as the poem shared by Wright College Vice President Nicole Reaves (see below image gallery). And, don’t forget to support our Student Veterans Association’s Veterans Clothing Drive and Toys for Tots Collection! Collection boxes are in Campus Center!


Honor Our Military
by Joanna Fuchs

Let’s honor our military,
The men and women who serve,
Whose dedication to our country
Does not falter, halt or swerve.

Let’s respect them for their courage;
They’re ready to do what’s right
To keep America safe,
So we can sleep better at night.

Let’s support and defend our soldiers,
Whose hardships are brutal and cruel,
Whose discipline we can’t imagine,
Who follow each order and rule.

Here’s to those who choose to be warriors
And their helpers good and true;
They’re fighting for American values;
They’re fighting for me and you.
