Earlier in the week, we will be placing one flag for each U.S. service member who has paid the ultimate sacrifice since the start of the conflicts following 9/11/2001. This includes Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), Operation New Dawn (OND), Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR), and Operation Freedom's Sentinel (OFS).

Veterans Day Ceremony
Flags for the Fallen

For the Blue Hen Veterans, Veterans Day is not just a time to reflect upon and recognize their service to the county. At the University of Delaware, it is also a time to remember our fellow veterans who did not have the privilege of making it home to their families. For the past three years, the Blue Hen Veterans have placed flags on The Green, in front of Memorial Hall, to honor the many service members who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. Our goal is to provide some perspective to the UD community on the magnitude of these sacrifices.
