Dartmouth marks Veterans Day with traditional observances such as the formal flag drill and retreat, community events, and programming to broaden the community’s understanding of veterans’ lasting contributions to the College and the nation. At Dartmouth the impact and leadership of veterans past, present, and future can be seen everywhere. “Veterans Day is a day to remember those who have served. It’s a day to do what we should do every day of the year,” says President Emeritus James Wright, a Marine Corps veteran.
