Letter to the Editor

Dear Guidon Editor,

I want to extend my sincere thanks to the entire Norwich Community for supporting Team Red, White & Blue over the course of last week. Students, faculty, staff, and community members were endlessly gracious when it came to supporting the Student Government Association’s cause, Team RWB.

We surpassed our goal of three thousand dollars, with $3,045! We sold completely out of Team RWB pins, stickers, and bracelets that we had to start giving away our valuable NUSGA pens.

Team RWB’s mission is to enrich the lives of our veterans through physical and social activities and events all throughout our country.

Our efforts here at Norwich University join growing efforts across our nation to support our veterans and give back thanks for the sacrifice they have made. Thank you for making a difference in our veterans lives! Norwich for Team Red, White & Blue!


“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve…shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.”
