Ashford University Salutes the Nation's Military

Video series pays tribute to the men and women who serve in the U.S. armed forces

In recognition of National Military Appreciation Month,   Ashford University employees created a series of videos expressing gratitude to the nation’s servicemembers. Easily viewed on Ashford University’s YouTube channel, a total of four videos were produced and posted to the social media site throughout the month of May.

In the first video, members of the Ashford University staff share a special message to the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces. Military Appreciation Month: Thank You

The second Military Appreciation Month video asks and answers the question, “What does freedom mean to you?” Ashford University staff members – many of whom have served in the military or have family members who do – talk about what freedom means to them. Military Appreciation Month: What Does Freedom Mean to You?

In the third installment of Ashford University’s Military Appreciation Month video series, staff members who are current and former servicemembers talk about the most memorable places they have traveled to courtesy of the U.S. military. Military Appreciation Month: Where We’ve Been

The final video in the series features members of Ashford University’s staff who work with servicemembers – and, in many cases, have served themselves – speaking about the ways they show their appreciation for the military, not only during Military Appreciation Month, but every day. Military Appreciation Month: Show You Care
