I am pleased to announce the 16th Annual UC San Diego Veterans Staff Association Veteran Recognition Ceremony to honor our veterans and members of the Armed Forces. The ceremony will take place on Thursday, November 5, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in UC San Diego’s Supercomputer Center Auditorium. The event is open to the public and light refreshments will be served immediately following the celebration. The theme of this year’s ceremony is “Successfully Transitioning from Military to Civilian Careers.”
Our UC San Diego Veteran of the Year, Jan Noz, will be honored and thanked for her service, and each veteran and military service member in attendance will be recognized. Joe Musselman, from the Honor Foundation, will be the keynote speaker. John Snelson, from the Marine for Life Program, will be the guest speaker.
If you plan to attend the event, please RSVP by Thursday, October 29 at: http://veterans.ucsd.edu/2015_voy_registration/
To support the recognition of veterans and members of the Armed Forces on campus, I am approving 90 minutes 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 Joanna Boval at email@example.com in advance of the event.
Join your colleagues as UC San Diego celebrates the contributions of the outstanding veterans, active military, retired military, reservists and military affiliates who add so much value to our campus community.
