Military Graduate Recognition Ceremony

The Liberty University Office of Military Affairs invites all graduating Liberty service members, veterans, and military spouses, as well as military faculty and staff members to the Military Graduate Recognition Ceremony. 

The ceremony will be presided over by Dr. Barry Moore, retired major, U.S. Marine Corps, and vice president for outreach and strategic partnerships at Liberty. All graduating service members and veterans will be presented with a Challenge Coin, a cherished tradition at Liberty University. 

Retired Maj. Gen. Robert F. Dees, U.S. Army, will deliver the keynote address. Gen. Dees served for more than 35 years in the United States Armed Forces in a variety of command and staff positions. Gen. Dees retired with numerous honors and awards in 2003, and now serves as Liberty’s associate vice president of military outreach.

It is fitting that our military graduates will be recognized on May 9, Military Spouse Appreciation Day. Military spouses provide tremendous support to our service members and are an integral part of military families. All military spouses in attendance will be honored for the vital service they provide to this country. All graduating military spouses will be given a separate gift of congratulations.  

The entire Liberty family is proud of the 2014 military graduates and their commitment to serving our nation. We continue to pray for the safety of our men and women in uniform and for the families who support them.
