Honoring Our Veterans

Dear CSN Family,

Today we salute our brave service members for their patriotism and willingness to sacrifice to protect our freedom and liberties. It is my honor to recognize the dedication and service of our veteran students, faculty and staff in the extended CSN Family on the centennial commemoration of the Veterans Day holiday. 

We value the far-reaching impact our veterans have in our communities and are committed to helping our veterans achieve, succeed and prosper. The CSN Veterans Education & Transition Services (VETS) Center was established to act as a liaison between CSN students and the Department of Veterans Affairs to assist veterans and their dependents with their educational benefits and academic needs. I encourage the CSN Veteran community to explore resources and services available at the VETS Center directly at csn.va@csn.edu.

US Department of Veterans Affairs – About Veterans Day 2021 

The theme for Veterans Day 2021 is centered on the centennial commemoration of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Located at Arlington National Cemetery, the Tomb was initially dedicated by the Army on Armistice Day, November 11, 1921, with the burial of an unknown service member from World War I.  

Over the past century, additional unknowns have been buried at the Tomb, and the site has become a people’s memorial that inspires reflection on service, valor, sacrifice and mourning. This year’s Veterans Day poster competition asks artists to envision a design that evokes elements of the history, legacy, and meaning of the Tomb during its centennial anniversary.
