WE WELCOME ALL HARVARD VETERANS...
..to the Harvard Veterans Alumni Organization. There is a proud history of military service to our country, and sacrifice, by more than 10 generations of the men and women of Harvard. This service ranges from King Philip’s War in 1675, to many who are now on active duty throughout the world, and the more than 150 Veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars who are currently students and fellows at Harvard graduate schools.
We join others at Harvard in appreciation of this continuing commitment. As a President of Harvard once remarked, all of the men and women of Harvard in the Armed Forces “are doing something profoundly important...something that is very noble, and something that is crucial.”
We invite all members of this Harvard Community - students, alumni, faculty and staff - who have served, or are serving, in the United States Military to join us in this “Long Crimson Line.”
