Dear students, staff and faculty,

I am honored on this day each year to thank our nation’s military veterans for their service and sacrifice. Many of our students, staff and faculty made a commitment to the United States and to us all through military service. They secured the freedoms we enjoy. The varied experiences our veterans bring to UAF help us grow and make us stronger as a community.

Retired Army Col. Tom Hough and his team in the Department of Military and Veterans Services maintain strong partnerships with Fort Wainwright and Eielson Air Force Base, and work daily to expand opportunities for veterans, active-duty and National Guard personnel, and their family members.

Please take time to thank someone you know who served. To all our veterans and the families who support them, thank you. And a special thanks to our Nanook veterans. Thanks for your service and thanks for choosing UAF.

— Dan White, chancellor
