Remarks will be offered by two Veterans with extensive ties to the UMD community. Col. Jack Baker (ret. U.S. Air Force) served for over 20 years, and is now the Director of Facilities Operations and Maintenance at UMD. Sara Olsen completed nine years of active duty and currently serves in the U.S. Navy Reserves. She is a Ph.D student in the School of Public Health, and is one of the founders of the Crossroads Adaptive Athletic Alliance—a nonprofit designed to increase inclusive fitness for all people with disability.

All attendees, including Veterans and their co-workers and families, are invited to be our guests at a buffet lunch in the Memorial Chapel Garden of Reflection and Remembrance.

Attendees also will receive a Veterans Day Honor and Remember bracelet while supplies last!
