Veterans Day 2018 In June of 1954, Congress officially amended the Armistice Day Holiday, commemorating the end of World War I to Veterans Day. Veterans Day was enacted to honor the service and commitment of all those who served and defended our country in the Armed Services. November 11th is recognized annually as the day to honor our veterans. Today NEIU recognized those members of our community, students, faculty and staff who are Veterans, with a ceremony in the Recital Hall. The NEIUPD is proud to have department members who not only serve the NEIU Community, but who have also proudly served our nation. The NEIUPD is grateful for the service of Police Officer Pablo Castro (Marines), Officer Carlos Collazo (Army/Marines), Administrative Assistant Rosetta Cash (Army), Officer Kurt Engelhart (Air Force), Sergeant Tony Loster (Marines), Security Guard Marcus Winston (Army National Guard) and Lt. Paul Kruszynski (Army). The NEIUPD is thankful of our own members who serve NEIU and who have served the United States of America. We thank all veterans who have served our country! We hope all veterans enjoy their day of honor!
