University of Utah Veterans Day Commemoration

Since 1998 the University of Utah Veterans Day Committee has selected Utah veterans to be honored in a special military service at a November commemoration ceremony--one of the biggest college campus events of its kind in the US. The day of the commemoration offers a full schedule of activities that are free and open to the public, including a medallion ceremony and cannon salute, a morning panel discussion with military and civilian experts, and a musical performance. The Utah National Guard 23rd Army Band also holds a patriotic concert that evening. As the state’s flagship institution, the University of Utah is a befitting place to honor the Utah men and women who so valiantly served our country in armed conflict.

All events are free and open to the public. For More information, call 801-581-6773
