Veterans Day 2011
With special activities, luncheons on each campus and college-wide banners and posters, TCC honored and thanked its thousands of veterans and service members on Veterans Day, Friday, 11/11.
Among activities, TCC conducted a flag-raising ceremony; the Veterans Affairs office on the Portsmouth Campus welcomed vets to place pins on a large map noting where they served around the world; and Virginia Beach held family-oriented activities.
To help vets and their families through VetsHouse, TCC collected canned goods at distribution centers on the campuses. In other ways of support, the CMVE sponsored a team in the Norfolk Freedom Half Marathon, and TCC’s Culinary Arts program served special dinners at the Scope for runners in the 11/13 race.
