SMU military veterans were presented with lapel pins today at the SMU Flagpole in honor of their service and membership in the SMU Veteran community. The presentation was from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
On Wednesday, the veterans will also be honored at a luncheon featuring Miguel Howe, a retired U.S. Army colonel and director of the Military Service Initiative at the George W. Bush Institute. The luncheon will be held in the Martha Proctor Mack Grand Ballroom in Umphrey Lee Center.
Attendees are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys to donate to Toys for Tots and care package items for SMU representatives collecting the items to support active duty U.S. military service members.
