A Veterans Day Message from President Marbach

As our nation marks Veterans Day, I want to thank our students, faculty, staff, and alumni for their service to our country and their courage in defending the ideals of our country. Across the United States today, there will be many celebrations, memorials, and community projects to remember their sacrifices.

If you know a veteran, please thank them directly. Please remember their families, too, as they are often challenged—and changed—by military service. The freedoms we enjoy as Americans, even when we disagree, are often at the heart of what moves members to join the military. 

Today and every day, we are proud of our student veterans who have chosen GCU as a place to continue learning, to keep growing, and to find new ways to serve. Just as they are committed to our country, we are committed to their success and supporting them academically, socially, and through student services.

As you reflect on their contributions, I invite you to pray for our veterans and the hardships they may have faced, or still encounter. This offering from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, A Prayer for Our Troops, is an excellent starting point.

Again, we thank you.
