"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." -John Fitzgerald Kennedy
In 1945, Navy Pier opened its doors to veterans returning from World War II. Today as the University of Illinois at Chicago, we reflect upon Veterans Day, let us not only remember our past but also appreciate and recognize our current veterans on campus who sit in our classrooms, teach our courses and serve our students. The UIC Veterans Day Planning Committee offers a collection of activities designed to educate, enlighten and honor veterans beginning on November 5, 2016. All members of the campus community are invited to participate.
