DU Remembers...Will You?
The Veterans Task Force invites you to show support for our United States service men and women who are students, faculty, and professional staff by wearing a "DU Remembers …Will You?" wristband or wearing red, white and/or blue on Fridays. Wearing the wristband can spark conversation and contribute to a culture of respect and support for our soldiers on campus and in our lives. Take time to inquire more about friends, family and campus members who have served — ask the questions and discover their stories.
