Everyday Should be Veteran’s Day….


6df0ac013009a6d9c9e7593e9d1616eeGreetings Friends:

Many of us know what Veteran’s Day symbolizes and whom it pays homage to for sacrifice and service.  What invests us into this celebration even further is hearing the stories of those in the communities with which we have ownership discuss the impact of this experience on their past, present and future identities.  At Franklin we have a number of students, faculty and staff who have ownership with this experience.  While you may know or interact with these individuals frequently, you may not be aware of their service, or if aware, may not realize the magnitude that this identify has on their development.

In case you have not had a chance to check out yesterday’s post from Julie Blake, below are links to six videos capturing the military experiences of alumni, faculty and staff at Franklin.  Each video varies in length; I would encourage you to just spend a few minutes watching some snippets of each testimonial and reflect upon what meaning these experiences hold for you as an individual.  Take time to reflect on methods that you can employ to honor and serve veterans and active service members you interact with on a regular basis who have served.  Without these individuals, the United States of America would not be what it is today.

A special thanks goes out to Jeff Oehler, Interactive Developer for Franklin’s International Institute for Innovative Instructor and Alyssa Darden, Interim Library Director, for their work in making these testimonials a reality!
