About Veterans Day

Veterans Day is November 11

Dartmouth College commemorates Veterans Day each year with several days of events honoring the service of America's veterans. All members of the Dartmouth community are encouraged to join us recognizing the accomplishments and sacrifices of the men and women who have so proudly and valiantly worn the uniforms of our nation's military. Events include a Formal Military Retreat Ceremony conducted by Dartmouth ROTC, Rememberance Breakfast at the Hanover Inn, and the Marine Corps Birthday Ball.
