UAB Veterans Services is hosting its fifth annual Wreath Laying Ceremony this Veteran’s Day, Monday, Nov. 11 from 2 to 3 p.m. on the UAB Campus Green. This year, U.S. Sen. Doug Jones will present the keynote address.

Walter Stewart, Director of Veterans Services, began the wreath laying tradition as a way to recognize and honor veterans at UAB. “As a retired army veteran, I believe that UAB should take every opportunity afforded to us to honor and recognize our military population,”  he said. 

This event allows the UAB community to pause and honor our veterans, who have had to transition into or out of civilian life. 

Following the ceremony, attendees are invited to a reception in the Veterans Services lounge (Hill Student Center, Suite 313) until 4 p.m. For disability accommodations, email dss@uab.edu.
