University of Maryland University College proudly celebrates National Military Appreciation Month, honoring all the men and women who have worn the uniforms of the U. S. armed forces. We thank you for your service.

Congress dedicated May as National Military Appreciation Month in 1999 to provide the nation the opportunity to express appreciation for the sacrifices and successes made by our servicemembers. UMUC is proud to have served our military for 70 years. Today, we serve more than 50,000 active-duty servicemembers, reservists, National Guard members, veterans, and their family members.

UMUC salutes the members of our military who inspire us in their daily service. We want to know who inspires you, and we invite you to share your stories about the servicemembers who have made a positive impact on people’s lives at #militaryheroes.
