College Hosts Activities in Honor of Veteran’s Day

Paul D. Camp Community College will recognize veterans for their service and dedication to our country by hosting a musical salute on Friday, Nov. 8.


The 392nd Army Band from Fort Lee will perform at 7 p.m. at the College’s Regional Workforce Development Center.


“Our military community is critically important,” said Vice President for Institutional Advancement Felicia Blow. “Paul D. Camp Community College serves approximately 200 military and veteran students each year. We want to make sure our students, as well as our faculty and staff veterans to know how much we appreciate their heroic service.”


In addition, on Tuesday, Nov. 12, from 10 a.m. to noon, a VA Health Benefits Brief will be held on the Hobbs Suffolk Campus, 271 Kenyon Road.


Representatives from the Department of Veterans Affairs Hampton Veterans Medical Center will be on hand to provide information about the health benefits that may be available to veterans. Enrollment specialists will answer questions regarding eligibility and assist with registration. Active duty, retirees, veterans, and spouses, family members and loved ones of veterans are encouraged to attend.


As part of College’s military and veteran activities, the College is also promoting a statewide Student Veterans Conference hosted by Old Dominion University. The event will be held at the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk on Friday, Nov. 22.
