Event Description
Drexel welcomes faculty and professional staff who are veterans to this special breakfast along with all faculty and professional staff who wish to gather in honor of their favorite veterans or in support of friends and family who are currently in military service. Drexel's faculty and professional staff community includes veterans who have served our country; it also employs spouses, children, siblings, parents, family, friends and mentors of those of have served or are currently serving. So, it gives us great pride to support these individuals and be in the company of others who appreciate the significance of their service. In preparation for Veterans Day 2012, Human Resources is co-sponsoring this event with the Office of Veteran Student Services to encourage faculty and professional staff to come together formally to share military service interests. This is also a great way to learn more about the initiatives coming from the Office of Veteran Student Services, The Veterans Task Force and the greater Philadelphia community. The program will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m., and will include the following activities:  A patriotic musical tribute  A special reading by Sean Casey of Warrior Writers from the After Action Review: A Collection of Writing & Artwork by Veterans of the Global War on Terror. Copies of After Action Review will be available for sale.  Make a ready-to-wear pin of your favorite veteran or service person (bring a photograph no more than 2" in diameter)  Sign up to become a mentor to a student-veteran  Meet representatives from the Veterans Administration  Enter to win raffle prizes, including tickets to the Army v. Navy game  Write a letter to active service men and women  Take a guided tour of historic American flags on loan from the Philadelphia Flag Association in the Annex of the Armory RSVP at
