WMU-Cooley Law School’s Lansing campus hosted veterans during a pancake breakfast sponsored by the office of Lansing Mayor Andy Schor on Monday, Nov. 11. The Veterans Day event offered the free breakfast for veterans along with an opportunity for veterans, students, faculty, and staff to interact.
During the event, Schor and WMU-Cooley Law School Associate Dean and Ret. Brigadier General Michael C.H. McDaniel addressed the audience, while the Glen Erin Pipe Band performed a patriotic tribute to honor those who have served the country.

“My message today is simple. I say to all of the veterans and to all of the law students here today: Never Stop Serving. And I say to the rest of us here: Never forget their service,” McDaniel told the group before reciting the Army Officer Oath and the Oath as an Attorney.
“This Veterans Day, please ask a veteran you know to tell their story. Heroes walk to the left and right of you every day. They have your back. Learn who they are. Appreciate what they've done. Let them know that you have their back, as well. Tell them you will not forget their service. Then dedicate some part of your life to either serve others or assist those who served.”
