La Verne gathers to celebrate Veterans

Brooke Grasso Metro Editor The Veterans Memorial stands tall and proud on the corner of Bonita and Wheeler avenues, just as veterans and active service members did Wednesday as community members applauded them for their courage at the City of La Verne’s Veterans Day ceremony. “You have given us security, you have given us prosperity and you have given us the greatest nation on Earth,” Maj. Duc... 

Veterans Day should be observed

Veterans Day is a time to honor those who have served our country. It is a federal holiday where we are able to show appreciation for those who have sacrificed so much to keep us safe and at peace. Yet students and faculty at the University of La Verne were once again unable to have the day off to do so. While many public schools and businesses observed the holiday by closing Wednesday, the University... 

Sports Clips gives support to veterans

Lauren Harchut Staff Writer The La Verne Sports Clips is one of many locations that has partnered with the Veterans of Foreign Wars to help veterans and service members make the transition back into civilian life, through their Help A Hero program. In 2013, the Sports Clips chain began working with the VFW to create the national Help A Hero campaign and has raised $1.2 million since. The program helps... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I find it necessary to express my extreme displeasure with the La Verne’s current policy that requires the University be in session on Veteran’s Day. The fact that you hold a parade and other festivities is irrelevant; I find it hypocritical at best and at worst, insulting. The entire country recognizes Veteran’s Day to honor those individuals who have put their lives in harm’s...

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, As a Vietnam veteran and a 45-year participant in the antiwar movement, I would like to propose a goal which I hope we can all share: May we have future generations that have no veterans, because there were no wars to create them. The Vietnam, Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan veterans I have counseled overwhelmingly support this philosophy; can we support them? Their wars didn’t end when... 

Let’s have a day to honor vets

The University has been named the best institution for veterans in California by U.S. News and World Report, due in part to the University’s participation with federal initiatives helping veterans and active-duty personnel apply, pay for and pursue a degree.

Veterans Day celebrated in classroom

Veterans Day celebrated in classroom
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff November 11 marked the day that we, as Americans, honor the ones that have served our country in the U.S. military. On Veterans Day, military service members were able to spend the day with their family and friends. They ate, they laughed, they had a good time, and they celebrated. Here at La Verne we celebrated our decorated heroes by having classes. Students who...
