Individuals who volunteer to serve in our country’s military are often motivated by a strong desire to help, protect and give back to others — and this drive to serve often continues after their time in the military. Arizona State University honors all the brave and selfless men and women who serve and have served in the military, and specifically wants to recognize those who have continued in a career of service after leaving the military. Thank you!

We also recognize that this dedication to service isn’t inherent only in members of the military and veterans — millions of everyday Americans find value and fulfillment in serving their communities. With the theme Salute to Service through service, ASU’s 2018 Salute to Service events are dedicated to all Americans who serve, whether on the front lines of combat or the front lines of improving their communities. 

ASU’s annual Salute to Service celebration is traditionally a week of academic, social and athletic events, with opportunities for the ASU family to honor veterans and serve in the community.
