We strive to connect with and honor all UC alumni who are currently serving or have served our country in the military. Our goal is to compile a comprehensive list of all UC alumni veterans, and we continue to add names regularly. Please email [email protected] to confirm that we have your name, or that of your sibling or classmate who has served.
Additionally, we have converted one of the lighted display cases in the Tradition Meets Tomorrow Hallway (second floor outside the library) into a UC military exhibit. The showpiece is a framed American flag that flew over the US Embassy, Kabul, Afghanistan and was donated by Andrew R. Fingall, Major, USAF, and UC Class of 1990. We invite our UC Alumni Veterans to donate an item and/or photo of you in uniform that we may add to the display.
We are thankful for and blessed by your service, and we are immensely proud to call you UC alumni!

2022 Veterans Day Ceremony
UC is proud to honor all Veterans, especially UC Alumni, who have so bravely served our country. Our 2022 Veterans Day ceremony included a procession of flags, laying of flowers, prayerful readings and singing, all by UC students. We were delighted to feature the musical talents of Dave Thornton '75 on bagpipes and Cedrick Alexis '08 on violin.
