Fourth Annual

Veteran and Military Student Recognition Week


Flag Raising Ceremony, National Minute of Silence, and the National Roll Call

The 2012 Veteran and Military Student Recognition Week will begin on Monday, November 12th with a flag raising ceremony, conducted by our own Montclair State University veteran and military students.  The flag raising ceremony will begin at 1:30 pm, followed by participation in a nationwide minute of silence at 2:00 pm.

The University will also be participating in the 2012 National Roll Call.  For the Roll Call, members of the campus community will be invited to remember/honor service members, living or deceased, of any era of service, by reading their name(s) during this special ceremony.  The Roll Call ceremony will take place between 2:00 - 3:30 pm.
