Salute to Veterans and Armed Services
Each year, the Daniels Center, in conjunction with MTSU Football, hosts the Salute
to Veterans and Armed Services as a way to pay tribute to U.S. veterans and current active-duty personnel. The day consists of the veterans memorial service, picnic, Vets Village, the Dr.
Joe Nunley Award, and the Halftime Salute Parade. The most recent Salute to Veterans
and Armed Services, held on November 5th, marked 35th years of tradition. For the event's 35th year anniversary,
Gulf War veterans were honored at the Veterans Memorial Service, lifelong friends
Bob Lamb and Bud Morris (pictured below) were the co-recipients of the Dr. Joe Nunley
Award, and veterans from every branch of the military marched across Horace Jones Field in the Halftime Salute Parade.
Graduating Student-Veteran Stole Ceremony
The most recent stole ceremony was held on November 28th and recognized nearly 25
of the 90 student-veterans who graduated on December 10, 2016.
MTSU began to honor its graduating veterans with a formal Stole Ceremony starting
with the first ceremony in May 2015. The student-veterans receive red stoles to wear
during the university’s commencement ceremonies. “The Stole Ceremony demonstrates a clear commitment to recognize and appreciate the
selfless service and sacrifice of our veterans and their precious families,” said
Huber. “This stole ceremony will become a tradition symbolizing academic achievement
