TCU commemorates Veterans Day 2014

Each year from Nov. 7 to 11, members of the Horned Frog family join together to observe Veterans Celebration Week, commemorating the brave men and women who have served and are serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Created by the Veterans Services Task Force, the week-long series of events began with a wreath-laying ceremony in TCU Veterans Plaza on Nov. 7. Other activities included:

TCU has a long and storied military history. In WWII, campus landmarks like Jarvis Hall and Clark Hall served as home quarters to many naval and army service units, and trainees took college courses while undergoing operative training.

Today, the University continues to welcome those who have served in the armed forces and the dependents of those who serve. TCU commits significant financial aid via the Post-9/11 GI Bill and the Yellow Ribbon Program, and TCU Veterans Services provides support to assist veterans and their dependents in obtaining a college degree.
