Events at The Daniels Center

Veteran Impact Celebration

MTSU Student Union Ballroom - 7th Annual

Ballroom , Student Union (STU)

Charlie and Hazel Daniels Veterans and Military Family Center hosts our signature Veteran Impact Celebration annually.

The goal of the event is to foster a community tradition, celebrate our community’s Veterans, raise awareness of the Daniels Center and garner funds to assist more Veterans and their families with an unprecedented level of support through the critical period of transition from military service to the civilian workforce. We invite you to join us! 

Veterans and their families have served our nation with distinction. With your support, you can truly thank our Veterans for their service by providing the resources needed as they successfully transition to the civilian workforce and their community.
