Eagle military members, families to be recognized during Military Appreciation Month

Each May, individuals are encouraged to celebrate National Military Appreciation Month in a symbol of unity. Throughout the month, the Office of Military & Veteran Services (MVS) at Georgia Southern University will honor active and former members of the Armed Forces, as well as their dependents and spouses, who are part of the Eagle Nation family.


“Here in Eagle Nation, we are so proud of our military, our veterans, our active duty, our Guard and Reserve members, our spouses of the military and children of the military,” said retired Col. George L. Fredrick, Ed.D., director of MVS. “It is truly an honor to recognize and commemorate our military-connected student population at Georgia Southern University. We are so proud to serve this wonderful community and to recognize them during this national celebration.”


The University will first observe Military Dependent Day on April 30 to recognize more than 3,000 children of military personnel on Georgia Southern’s campuses. 


For Military Spouse Appreciation Day, which is May 7, MVS encourages military spouses from the campus community to stop by the Military Resource Centers on the Statesboro, Armstrong and Liberty campuses beginning on May 12 to receive special gift bags in thanks for their many sacrifices. 


On May 15, the University will recognize active military men and women across all campuses for Armed Forces Day. To nominate a University-affiliated member currently serving in the Armed Forces visit here

In honor of the men and women of the Armed Forces who have made the ultimate sacrifice during their time of service, MVS encourages you to submit a Memorial Day tag of remembrance for fallen service members. The Memorial Day Flags Observance will be on view on all three campuses from May 19 through June 4.
