Welcome to Military & Veterans Services 

Welcome and thank you for making the extraordinary decision to serve our country.  Military and Veteran Services (MVS) is the office to go to for any student using an educational benefit that is related to their (or their spouse/parent) military connection.  Students will make the MVS office their first choice in learning about those educational benefits and how to apply them to their college expenses. We are the primary resource within the university community for students using military benefits, information about programs offered, and to learn about opportunities such as the Student Armed Forces Association (SAFA).  The MVS office plays a central role on campus in raising awareness, educating the community and being vigilant about maintaining our status as a Military Friendly Institution. 

 

Volunteer Sign Up for the Vietnam Memorial Wall visit to UNH!

The Vietnam Memorial Wall is coming to UNH! Beginning on the morning of May 4th volunteers will be needed to help setup the wall, transport items to the site, and prepare for visitors who will begin arriving the afternoon of the 4th.

The Vietnam Memorial Wall is a half size replica of the wall that is in Washington D.C. The wall will be set up on the Great Lawn in front of DeMerritt Hall with easy access for viewing along the sidewalk that comes up from Main Street toward DeMerritt and Murkland Halls. We are required to provide 2 to 3 people as volunteers to be on site for the entire event 24/7. Volunteers will be scheduled for 2 to 4 hour blocks of time starting May 4th at 8:00 a.m. and ending May 8th by noon.

Please sign up and indicate days and times you are available. We will create a spreadsheet with assignments and check back with you to confirm we have you in a slot that fits your availability. Whatever time you can give will be very much appreciated.
