Military Appreciation Month

Military Appreciation Month raises awareness 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 Appreciation Month seeks to carry on this legacy. Once a one-day event on campus, Military Appreciation Month has been expanded to a month-long celebration in order to give greater visibility, support, and recognition to our military and veterans. Events are planned throughout campus during this month to show appreciation for the men and women who have served and are serving this great nation.
