Veterans Day 2016 – Hobart and William Smith Colleges \
The HWS Update

Veterans Day 2016

On Veterans Day, the Colleges pause to honor those alumni, alumnae and other members of the Hobart and William Smith community who have dedicated their lives to serving the nation through the United States Armed Forces.

In addition, the HWS Update has featured a number of recent stories about alums who have or are currently serving in the U.S. military, such as:
