UIW Veterans Tribute Stole

Veterans are extraordinary people. When our men and women are called to duty, they answer without hesitation. They are the proud, the brave and the strong. To all, they are the Heroes, Veterans and Service men and women of the United States of America.

The UIW Veterans Tribute stole recognizes and honors our students who have served our country. The stole is to be worn at the UIW graduation to honor those that have served, and provided free of charge to the eligible students, by the UIW Center for Veterans Affairs. We are proud of our men and women in service. We respect them, we honor them, and most of all, we "Thank You" for serving and protecting our country.

To receive your free Tribute stole for commencement, sign-up during Senior Salute and stoles will be distributed during Graduation Finale ( Contact us at 210-832-2154 or e-mail with any questions.

Please note: Only active or separated Veterans, participating in a current graduation ceremony, are eligible to receive a free stole. Students not participating in a ceremony may contact the UIW Bookstore to purchase stoles.
