A message from Andrew Gates, coordinator of Veterans Recruitment and Services:
On this Veterans Day, I want to take a brief moment on behalf of the university to express deep respect and appreciation for anyone who has worn the uniform of our country.
We salute the honor and dedication each of you have shown through your service. We also recognize the great sacrifices many of you and your families have had to endure on behalf of a grateful nation.
St. Ambrose University is proud, not just today but every day, to be the school you chose to pursue your educational goals.
