The University of Oregon (UO) announced the opening of the UO Veterans Center Saturday, April 20. This long awaited moment is way over due for our men and women of our armed forces. The fact that a US Senator, Congressman, and the Mayors of Eugene and Springfield were present along with the Student Veterans of America’s Executive Director Michael Dakduk shows the importance of this event.

Mr. Dakduk flew out from Washington D.C. for the ribbon cutting ceremony and to served as the keynote speaker for the grand opening.

In the coming years this facility will serve veterans as they transition from military to civilian life.It was good to see the UO and community supporters step up and bring this center online.

Cheers to those who made this day possible.
