To our DCTC military-affiliated community,

We asked DCTC students and employees, “What message would you like to share with our military community at DCTC this Veteran’s Day?” Here is what they wanted to tell you:

  • Happy Veterans Day to each service member in the armed forces. I know I may not fully understand all the sacrifices you’ve had to make, but I can’t thank you enough for your service. I don’t take our freedoms for granted and I respect you so much for the part you played in making sure we have them. It’s because of you that each of us can enjoy safety and freedom. God bless each one of you and God bless America. – Jaela, Student: Early Childhood and Youth Development


  • To all soldiers, your sacrifice has not been forgotten. The scars of war may last. However, the freedom that Americans get from these soldiers overseas is not forgotten. Freedom doesn’t come free as many say. On November 11th, 1918, the first of two world wars to happen came to an end. A total of 116,516 total Americans died in that war. In 1938, America would call this day in world history National Armistice day. In 1954, it would change to Veterans Day in honor of all American soldiers who have died in the midst of battle. With that being said, along with the rest of the college. Thank you all for your service. As well as doing what you do on a daily basis. – Tyler Ballman, Digital Marketing
