All of us at the City University of New York salute veterans on this special day and join the rest of the country in expressing our profound gratitude to the men and women who have served our country. But we also do much more. We are justifiably proud that CUNY is the only university system in the country recognized with the coveted status of being veteran friendly, and even prouder of the more than 3,000 military veterans who have chosen to study or work at CUNY to advance their careers, supported by an array of services to help them achieve their dreams. Our veterans have stood up for us, and CUNY stands up for them, and with them, with a special salute today. To all veterans, thank you for your service.
