During commencement ceremonies this week, some students will be wearing special graduation cords in honor of their service in the US Armed Forces.

There are more than fifty veterans, reservists, and National Guard members graduating from UT Knoxville this spring and summer in various colleges as undergraduates, graduates, and law students.

The cords are red, white, and blue and serve as a token of appreciation from UT’s Office of Veterans Affairs.
