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.

 


A ceremonial flag-raising of the American and POW/MIA flags early on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, kicked off a day long tribute to veterans and military members.


Campuses were decked out in red, white and blue with American flags and Thank You posters decorating walks and walls.

Veterans enjoyed lunch on each campus and participated in a map activity, marking the spots on the map where they served.

Students recognized active duty military members for their service by creating colorful thank you cards to be sent to
troops overseas.

Smiling for the camera, students create personalized photos to send to loved ones far from home.
