Honoring Those Who Have Served

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918 an armistice went into effect ending hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany during WW1.

What came to be known as Armistice Day was primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954, after World War II had required the greatest mobilization of soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen in the Nation’s history; after American forces had fought aggression in Korea, the 83rd Congress, at the urging of the veterans service organizations, amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word "Armistice" and inserting in its place the word "Veterans." With the approval of this legislation on June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

Today we honor those that have made the commitment to serve our great nation throughout its history. To all who have served we say Happy Veterans Day and thank you for your service!

Special thanks to @ubstudentexp and UB Veterans Services for allowing the Golden Griffin Battalion to participate in your tribute to student veterans.

Yesterday was truly a bittersweet day for the GGBN. We celebrated the accomplishments of the Army’s 12 newest Second Lieutenants in a virtual commissioning ceremony. Congratulations 2LTs! You are more than well equipped to tackle the challenges that lay ahead of you with integrity, compassion, and the utmost professionalism. Your cadre is proud of your accomplishments to date and look forward to seeing you accomplish even more in the future!

We also said goodbye to our Professor of Military Science and our Senior Military Science Instructor. LTC Gross is heading to State College, PA to lead the Penn State University Army ROTC program after 4 years at Canisius Army ROTC. MSG Burgos is retiring after over 20 years of service to his country. Our entire program has benefited immeasurably from the leadership and experience of these outstanding Soldiers. Thank you for your service and best of luck in your future endeavors!

Originally known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

The holiday originally honored only those lost while fighting in the Civil War. But during World War I the United States found itself embroiled in another major conflict, and over time the holiday evolved to commemorate American military personnel who died in all wars, including World War II, The Vietnam War, The Korean War, and conflicts all the way through the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Please join us as we honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice so that others may be free.

We would like to say congratulations to GGBN alum and @canisiusalumni 2LT Trevor Hamm! 2LT Hamm recently graduated from the US Army Ranger school at Fort Benning, GA. Ranger School is is of the the toughest training courses for which a Soldier can volunteer. Army Rangers are experts in leading Soldiers on difficult missions - and to do this, they need rigorous training. For more than two months, Ranger students train to exhaustion, pushing the limits of their minds and bodies. 2LT Hamm is from Cleveland, Ohio and graduated from @canisius_college with a BA in Entrepreneurship. He commissioned as an Active Duty Infantry officer in 2019 and attended the Infantry Basic Officer Leader Course prior to starting Ranger School. He will be stationed with the 1st Infantry Division also known as The “Big Red One” at Fort Riley, Kansas. Keep up the great work 2LT Hamm!
