Thank You Veterans

Each Veterans Day, Ohio Christian University remembers the sacrifice of our patriots who serve in the United States Armed Forces to protect and secure our nation's freedom and safety.

The Gospel of John reminds us particularly of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice: John 15:13 - "Greater love has no one than this that he lay down his life for his friends."

President Donald Trump proclaimed November to be National Veterans and Military Families Month, saying “I encourage . . . all Americans to acknowledge and honor the service, sacrifices, and contributions of veterans and military families for what they have done and for what they do every day to support our great Nation.”

Ohio Christian University (OCU) has been recognized as a Top Military School.  In 2018, OCU was honored to be designated a Purple Heart University.

Provost Hank Kelly, a retired US Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, affirms that “OCU is committed to providing exceptional service and educational support to the military community. The Military Friendly School designation speaks to the University’s dedication to those who serve our country.”

Again, we offer our heartfelt gratitude to our veterans and their families for your sacrifice and service.
