[Joe May]: Hi, I'm Joe May, Chancellor of Dallas College. And I want to express our appreciation and respect to current and former members of all branches of the US Armed Forces on Veterans Day. You know, from its inception in 1919 as Armistice Day to commemorate the end of World War 1 to its present titled of Veterans Day, We set aside this day, November the 11th, to honor the courage, sacrifice and dedication of all who have served in the US Armed Forces. Their sacrifice preserves the liberty and freedoms we all enjoy every single day. And I'm really proud to know that among our employees, we have many veterans who continue the spirit of service in their work with our students. As educators, we have the privilege of helping former service members make the transition into a civilian career. The dedicated staff members of our campus Veterans Services offices ensure our military connected students receive the support they deserve to further their education, convert their military experience into college credit, finish an uncompleted degree or retrained for a new career. You know, every day through our service and community involvement, we strive to honor veterans from all branches of the military for their service. So to all of our veteran students and employees, as well as those whose families are serving or have served, we say a heartfelt thank you for your sacrifice and commitment to preserving our freedom.
