Seventy years after opening its doors to veterans returning from World War II, UNCW continues to honor active-duty and veteran members of the armed services.

For the second year in a row, the Office of Military Affairs will celebrate America’s veterans with a full week of events.

“We look forward to sharing this recognition with all Seahawks and throughout the greater Wilmington community,” said Bill Kawczynski, director of the Office of Military Affairs.

Veterans’ Week kicks off with a 5K race in collaboration with paws4people/paws4vets beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 4 on the UNCW campus. Registration is open now. On Sunday, more than 2,000 American flags will be placed around campus – one for each military-affiliated student, faculty or staff member.
