A Veteran’s Day Message from President Richard Schneider

We set aside Veterans Day each year to honor the men and women who have fought to keep our country strong and free. It is an equally important day for non-veterans because it is an opportunity to learn about the sacrifices made on their behalf by those who have served.

In this video message, President Richard W. Schneider invites the Norwich family to reflect on those whose “service to nation and others” has earned our lasting gratitude. Click here to watch the video message
