GW Men's Basketball gains perspective after GW Veteran's annual spring event

For the second year a row, GW Veterans has teamed up with the GW Office of Military and Veteran Student Services and sponsored the Military Mile Memorial March (M4); an annual Memorial Day event held before finals and GW Commencement which is led by student Veterans. The march starts at the Foggy Bottom Campus and showcases the sacrifices of America's heroes through varied memorials on the National Mall, greets Honor Flight recipients, and ends with a lunch that celebrates graduating students and the transition of the GW Veterans Executive Board..

In April 2015, GW Vet's Vice President-elect, Tommy Elms, reached out to GW Athletics and invited the Men's Basketball Team to join the event.  The team was able to participate in the event which  included meeting WWII Veterans. The team would later integrate the Vietnam Veterans Memorial into their summer workouts for which the George Washington University showcased the team's commitment with a video on Veteran's Day 2015.  The team was also showcased by the Washington Post .
