SALUTE Veterans National Honor Society
Troy University's SALUTE Veterans National Honor Society is one of just 400 active college chapters across the United States. It is the only national honor society that recognizes and honors the scholastic achievements of student veterans. The first chapter was formed in 2009 at Colorado State University. SALUTE chapters aim not only to foster the achievement of student veterans, but to honor their achievements and service.
SALUTE is an acronym of the core values of the honor society: Service, Academics, Leadership, Unity, Tribute, Excellence.
