Military Emphasis Week (MEW) raises awareness of and appreciation for those who have served and are serving in the United States military. Our founder, the late Dr. Jerry Falwell, led Liberty University by example, demonstrating the consistency of Christianity, patriotism, and love of country. Military Emphasis Week seeks to carry on this legacy.
Military Emphasis Week was once a one-day event on campus and has now been expanded to a week-long event in order to give greater visibility, support and recognition to our military and veterans. Events are planned throughout campus during this week to show appreciation for the men and women who have served and are serving this great nation.
One highlight of Military Emphasis Week is the patriotic convocation, occurring the Wednesday closest to Veteran’s day and featuring patriotic music, veteran testimonies and an inspirational message from a Christian combat veteran. Convocation is always followed with a veteran’s reception which allows for a time of camaraderie and a specially planned menu.
