UW-Madison student organizations will celebrate Veterans Day with events held at the Memorial Union and libraries on campus.

Veteran’s Day is celebrated annually on Nov. 11 to honor those who served in the U.S. Military and Armed Forces.

This year, UW-Madison planned events that recognized veterans, both student and other.

On Tuesday, the UW-Madison Student Veterans of America hosted a “human library” at College Library where people could learn more about veterans in the Madison community. The veterans acted as human books, sharing their knowledge and experiences with students.

Memorial Union will host a free breakfast Monday, where veterans can eat for free and enjoy the company of other local veterans.

“We are honored to bring the community together for this event and to have the opportunity to acknowledge our veterans’ sacrifices and service,” Wisconsin Union Director Mark Guthier said.

The UW-Madison Student Veterans of America along with College Republicans and College Democrats will set up a Veterans Day display on Bascom Hill.
