Dear Members of the Connecticut College Community,

This coming Sunday is Veterans Day, a U.S. holiday created to honor those who have served the country in various branches of the U.S. military.

There are a number of living veterans among our staff, faculty, and alumni, and I suspect that you also know people in your immediate or extended family who have served. With our close proximity to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and the Naval Submarine Base, the Conn community has perhaps a greater knowledge of and appreciation for such service than people on other college campuses.

I encourage you to take a moment this weekend to reflect on that, while joining me in thanking the veterans among us for their service.

Katherine Bergeron
