WHAT: Texas Tech honors 14th anniversary of 9/11
WHEN: Friday (Sept. 11)
WHERE: Texas Tech University
The Honors College, House of Haragan and the Military and Veterans Programs will provide a chance for students, faculty and staff to express their gratitude to current service members by writing letters to military men and women overseas. The event is a part of Operation Gratitude, a program that sends 15,000-plus care packages annually to new recruits, veterans, first responders, wounded warriors, care givers and individually named service members deployed overseas.
The Texas Tech University Air Force ROTC and the Military and Veterans Programs also will host a retreat ceremony with 19 military officers from Cannon Air Force Base to honor those who lost their lives 14 years ago. Guests are invited to gather inside Memorial Circle at 4:45 to watch the 15-minute ceremony. A few words will be spoken before the flag is lowered and taken down for the day.
The mission is to provide exceptional support and facilitation to students, faculty and staff for all issues related to the military and veterans. We are a support agency committed to enabling students to achieve their academic goals through campus and community wide resources with a one-stop problem resolution philosophy. Our success is measured by degree completion. We are dedicated to serving those who served.Facebook
