Happy Veteran's Day!

Tomorrow the nation celebrates Veterans Day, and at Florida State University, the EBV program is celebrating as well! With the offices already gearing up to begin planning for the 2011 EBV class, we are taking a moment to honor those who have served.

Our Veterans Day festivities will begin on Thursday at the Tallahassee Veterans Day Parade. This year’s parade promises to be one of the biggest ever with over 3,000 participants already registered! If you are in Tallahassee, please come out to show your support for our veterans! The parade begins at the intersection of Monroe and Call Streets at 10:30 a.m.

On Friday, we will be hosted by Westminster Oaks as they throw a benefit concert for the FSU EBV program. Our visiting veterans and the EBV staff will be attending the concert and the proceeds will be donated to our program!

Saturday night, our visiting veterans will take center field at the FSU vs. Clemson football game as they serve as honorary captains and flip the coin. The game will be broadcast on ABC at 8:00 p.m., please tune in and see if you can spot our veterans!!

The rest of November promises to be just as busy as we begin to prepare for our 2011 EBV class! Joining Dr. Blass this year is our new Managing Director, Ashley Edwards, and our work study student, Kelly Montoya. You’ll be hearing from them as we proceed with FSU EBV 2011.

As always, please continue to check our social sites and our website to see the latest updates and pictures from all of our events, and if you are interested in making a donation to the FSU EBV program, please click here:

We want to express a heartfelt thanks to our nation’s veterans and those currently serving. You all make the ultimate sacrifice for us, and there are no words to properly thank you. We are so proud to be able to work with so many of you through EBV and can’t wait to start our 4th year!
