Campus Events to Honor UHD Veterans

Veterans Day

In honor of Veteran's Day, the University of Houston-Downtown will commemorate UHD veterans' service with events on Thursday, Nov. 11.

UHD students, faculty and staff are invited to view the Texas Fallen Heroes Memorial Wall on display in the Welcome Center on Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event will be hosted by the University of Houston-Downtown Veterans Services and was planned in coordination with Rolling Thunder Texas, Chapter Two.  

"The wall lists Texas Veterans, who paid the ultimate sacrifice, for our country," said Veterans Services Director Antonio Guerra III. "It focuses on those men and women from the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, but there is homage paid to Veterans from major wars in the past as well."

The University of Houston-Downtown Main Career Center will also host a resume review event for veterans on Thursday, Nov. 11 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in its office located in Room 314 in the Girard Street Building. 

For additional information, contact Antonio Guerra, Director of Veterans Services, at 713-222-5388 or email him at guerraa@uhd.edu.
