ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD (including UCSD Healthcare)
I am pleased to announce and encourage faculty, staff, and students to participate in the fifth annual UCSD Veterans Association Recognition Ceremony as it honors veterans and the men and women in our armed forces.
The ceremony is open to the public and will take place on Wednesday, November 10, 2004, 12:00 noon - 1:00 p.m. in UCSD's Natural Sciences Building, first floor conference room. Please join the Veterans Association at UCSD for this very special event.
Honored guests will include John Finn, the Oldest Living Medal of Honor Recipient, and Mark Elder, the UCSD Veteran of the Year 2004 Recipient.
To support the Veterans Association Recognition Ceremony, I am approving one hour of administrative leave with pay so employees may attend the event. Therefore, supervisors are encouraged to grant employees one hour of administrative leave to attend the ceremony when the absence does not infringe upon the performance of required duties.
I hope that each of you can join us as we remember the contributions of all veterans, and to acknowledge the veterans who are members of the UCSD community.
