This week, the Fourth of July holiday lands on a Thursday. For some of us it means a four day weekend; a chance to fire up the BBQ grill and watch fireworks. For others, it’s the chance to reflect on the founding missions of the United States. We here at SUNY would like to recognize some alumni who have made major contributions to our country through the years, giving back to the people and communities that supported them. Read on to learn about just a few of our notable SUNY Alumni in American Service.
