NCCFT President Frank Frisenda’s Remarks at the Armed Forces Plaque Dedication Ceremony

Posted by The NCCFT Executive Committee

On December 14, 2017, Nassau Community College dedicated a display of five plaques, donated by the NCCFT, one for each of the armed services, which was unveiled in front of NCC’s Veterans House at 365 Rice Circle.  We are happy and proud to have helped in bringing recognition to our students who have served and whose presence enriches the campus community and the community at large.

  1. Just a reminder that there are FIVE branches of the armed services, NOT four. People seem to forget the United States Coast Guard, which today is under the Dept. of Homeland Security, but is still considered one of this country’s armed services. My husband is a USCG veteran who served in Vietnam, so I know quite a bit about the Coast Guard, and we feel badly when the USCG is not included. Thanks.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Fran. If you look closely at the picture, you’ll note that there are in fact five plaques mounted on the display. The word “four” in the post’s first sentence was a typo, which we have corrected.

    1. Thanks so much for including the USCG! Sorry, but until I enlarged the photo, you could not really tell what was on the display, but now we see that there are indeed FIVE plaques. Thanks again – not only for the inclusion of the USCG, but for your recognition of all our veterans!
