California State University, Stanislaus invites veterans and their families to honor the dedication and loyalty of American service men and women at Thank a Veteran Day on Wednesday.
Thank a Veteran Day features a posting of colors ceremony followed by a small reception and information fair for veterans of various ages and backgrounds. There will be a banner and cards for guests to sign that will be sent to those currently serving in Afghanistan and Iraq.
