UC San Diego Veterans Association Annual Recognition Ceremony




November 3, 2009

ALL AT UCSD (Including UCSD Medical Center)

SUBJECT:   UC San Diego Veterans Association Annual Recognition Ceremony

I am pleased to announce the Tenth Annual UC San Diego Veterans Association Recognition Ceremony at which our faculty, staff and students will honor veterans and the men and women in our Armed Forces. The ceremony will take place on Tuesday, November 10, 2009 from noon to 1:30 p.m. in UC San Diego’s Natural Sciences Building 1205 first floor conference room. The event is open to the public and light refreshments will be served immediately following the ceremony.

This year’s ceremony will acknowledge the dedication and contributions of our military families. Honored guests include United States Congressman Robert “Bob” Filner and the 2009 UCSD Veteran of the Year, Bryan R. Pettengill.

To support the Veterans Association Recognition Ceremony, I am approving one hour of administrative leave with pay. I ask supervisors to allow employees to attend as long as the absence does not infringe upon the performance of required duties or patient care.

Inquiries regarding the event or requests for a sign interpreter may be directed to John Will, Chair of the Veterans Association at UC San Diego, at (858) 534-0151 or jjwill@ucsd.edu.

I hope that each of you can join us as we remember the contributions of all veterans and acknowledge the veterans who are members of the UC San Diego community.
