The Emory community came together to honor those who have served in our nation's military in a Veterans Day Ceremony on Wednesday, Nov. 11. Retired Army Col. Jesse Brokenburr made remarks during the occasion, reflecting on his 28 years of service. "I was able to go places and see and do things that I never imagined," Brokenburr shared. 

Emory President James Wagner recognized the importance and impact of veterans to our nation and community. When asked to raise their hands in the air, dozens of proud veterans obliged, highlighting the diversity of veterans on the Emory campus. Students, faculty, deans and staff were all represented, along with every arm of the service. 

Wagner offered his appreciation on behalf of the entire Emory community: "Thank you for defending our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
