Veterans Day may not be here yet, but it is already being commemorated at Syracuse University. 

Ron Novack, the Executive Director of the office of Veteran and Military affairs at SU says they plan to honor thos that serve our nation in a special way as they do each year on campus.

On Friday, November 9, there will be a ROTC run & walk held at 6:30am, and then a Veterans Day Ceremony at Hendricks Chapel at 11:00am. Veterans will also be honored at the SU Football game vs Louisville at the Carrier Dome at 7:00pm.   

Major General Peggy Combs is known as the highest ranking female Army Official from SU. Major General Combs will retire ths weekend in Hendrick’s Chapel. Her special ceremony is a coming home celebration of sorts, as she will end her military career in the very place she began it.  She will be retiring during the ceremony at Hendricks Chapel.

“It has just been such a great honor to come back here and come back to the university that I love.” Major General Combs said.  

Syracuse University will host a number of events on campus to commemorate Veterans Day and honor all those who serve right here at home and beyond. To learn more about the varying events and how you can take part visit
