Veterans Day Primer 2013 A Tribute to Veterans Featuring Iconic Film Screening & Program In preparation for Veterans Day, please join members of the Veterans Task Force along with special guests from the faculty, administration and greater Philadelphia community to reflect on the contributions of American Veterans throughout our nation’s history. This year’s Primer will include the screening of “War Comes to America”, the 7th and final film in Frank Capra’s iconic World War II film series, Why We Fight. The film will be followed by a panel discussion lead by veterans, historians and military experts who will engage with the audience to discover more about the films’ great significance. Student-veterans and members of the Drexel Veterans Association will be present for a special SALUTES honor society induction and remarks from their generation of service men and women. In addition, Drexel MBA Students will be recognized for their Save A Suit Initiative this fall that benefits local veterans who are transitioning into the civilian workforce. The entire event is sponsored by the Veterans Task Force, Office of Veteran Student Services and the William Penn Chapter of the Association of the United States Army (AUSA).
