November 5, 2018
TO: The College Community
FROM: Dr. Shaun L. McKay, President
SUBJECT: Veterans Week Activities – 2018
In honor of Veterans Day, I would personally like to thank every Veteran student and employee for their service to our country. To mark this important day of remembrance, the entire college community is cordially invited and encouraged to participate in the various College activities that are being planned across our campuses in November. These include:
VETERANS DAY – Sunday, November 11th
Please take this time to honor and thank all who sacrificed for and served this country.
Students at the College who meet the definition for veteran status under Title 38 U.S. Code of Federal Regulations and who notify their professors in advance, will be provided with an excused absence on November 11th and will not be penalized in any way for observing that day.
1,2, MANY PROJECT – Monday, November 12th to Wednesday, November 14th
The 1, 2, Many Project was started after seeing media coverage of the epidemic of veteran suicide concentrate on the statistics, rather than the human beings caught inside the crisis. As a veteran and a survivor of suicidal behavior, Founder Tim Lawson wanted to change the conversation to engage the broader community in proactive solutions.

Eastern Campus: Tuesday, November 13th, 12:30 p.m. – Montaukett Learning Resource Center, Room 107

Student veterans, faculty and staff will dedicate a portion of the College’s Michael J. Grant Campus as a Veterans Plaza in memory of all who served and as a tribute to veterans past and present.

The College will also be acknowledging Veterans Day by displaying POW/MIA tables, American flags lining the walkways of campus, as well as the display of a Veteran Appreciation Tree.
Please plan on attending as many events as you can as a way of showing support to the student Veterans at Suffolk County Community College. I am sure you are as proud of the service our Veterans have provided as I am. This calendar of events is one way we can come together to show our support for each and every Veteran at the College and in the community. I look forward to seeing you during this time.
