Duquesne to Welcome Nearly 700 Guests at 15th Annual Veterans Day Breakfast

More than 700 veterans will be honored at the 15th Annual Veterans Day Breakfast on Monday, Nov. 11, at 8 a.m. in the Union Ballroom at Duquesne University. Hosted by Duquesne and presented by the Veterans Leadership Program of Western Pennsylvania (VLP), along with Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, it is the largest Veterans Day Breakfast held in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Recently ranked as the number one place for veterans to live in the United States by Forbes, the theme of this year's breakfast, Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow-Pittsburgh: A Place for Veterans, reflects the tremendous contributions veterans have made in the Pittsburgh region and how the community supports those who have served.

Major General T. S. Jones, a highly decorated Marine veteran, will give the keynote address. He will share his reflections of military service and veterans' transitions to civilian life.

The event also will feature live entertainment and conclude with veteran storytelling. The breakfast precedes the Veterans Day Parade, which begins on Liberty Avenue at 10:30 a.m. the same day.

Proceeds from 15th Annual Veterans Day Breakfast will benefit the VLP, Friends of Danang, Shepherd's Heart Fellowship and Duquesne University's Endowed Veterans Student Resource Fund.
