Missouri State Salutes Those Who Served Ahead of Veterans Day

Missouri State is saluting the men and women who served in our nation’s armed forced ahead of Veteran’s Day on Monday.

The University is hosting a series of events on Friday for veterans that are open to the public.

MSU will host a Veterans Day Breakfast at 9 a.m. in the Plaster Student Union Ballroom. The complimentary breakfast for veterans is sponsored by Central Bank and registration is requested.

The MSU Pride band will hold a Veterans Day Ceremonial Ensemble concert at 10:30 a.m. in front of McDonald Arena.

At 11:11 a.m., Taps will be played campus-wide.

At noon, a documentary, “Weight of Honor” will be shown in the Plaster Student Union Theater.

Missouri State houses the Oldham Family Veteran Student Center, where veteran students can find tutoring, community outreach, a computer lab, and other services.

“Military connected students use the lounge to find camaraderie, share experiences, and to study,” Raeleen Ziegler, director of the VSC, said in a statement. “There is a kitchen area where they enjoy complimentary coffee and snacks, and there is also a ping-pong table and board games for their entertainment.”

Students can also connect with organizations that can help them, such as the Veteran/Military Taskforce and the Veteran Student Organization.
