WHAT:

In recognition of Veterans Day, APU and Citrus College come together for the seventh annual Saluting Our Veterans event. The community is invited to join the two schools as they pay tribute to the men and women who have served in our nation’s military.

Christ Mellard and Danya DeLeon, Citrus College alumni and U.S. military veterans, are this year’s keynote speakers. The event features military vehicles on display and a patriotic music program with performances by the Gladstone High School marching band and the American Veterans (AMVETS) Honor Guard. Honorees include veterans from the cities of Azusa and Glendora, Azusa Pacific University, and Citrus College.

Reservist United States Air Force Lt. Col. Vic Bezjian, DBA, executive director of military and veterans resources at APU, will receive special recognition during the event for his years of military service and his commitment to helping the university’s veteran students. Over the last year, the number of veteran students at APU has increased by 38 percent, and the university was recently distinguished as a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs magazine for the 2012–13 school year.
