Veterans Committee

Blue hexagon with symbol of flying eagle and V with text "veterans" inside it

The UFT Veterans Committee is composed of veterans from every branch of the U.S. military who continue to serve our country as New York City educators. As educators, both in service and retired, we are especially proud of our Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps instructors, who regularly send their students to West Point, Annapolis, and the Air Force and Coast Guard academies, as well as to prestigious civilian institutions. 

Our past accomplishments as a committee include winning pension credits for veterans’ military service and increasing funding for the Veteran Affairs Administration. 

We also regularly participate in the annual Veterans Day Parade on Nov. 11 and the wreath-laying ceremony at the Vietnam memorial on the Wednesday before Memorial Day. 

We hope you will join us! Our meetings are virtual. For upcoming meetings, please call 212-598-7772, watch this webpage or read New York Teacher.
