VETERANS DAY 2023
Happy Veterans Day from Phi Psi HQ!
In honor of Veterans Day, we are extremely excited to share stories from Andy Dolvin Wittenberg ’09 and Don Bonine Michigan State ’60. These two Phi Psi veterans were willing to have a conversation with our staff about their military service, how Phi Psi positively impacted their lives both personally and their deployment, and words of wisdom for current and future Phi Psis.
Phi Psi is proud to honor our brothers who have answered our country’s call to serve. To all Phi Psi brothers who have served or are currently serving our country, we thank you.
“To us in America,
the reflections of Armistice Day
will be filled with solemn pride
and the heroism of those who died
in the country’s service and with
gratitude for the victory.”
– Woodrow Wilson Virginia 1879
