Salute to Service
Vanderbilt Athletics is honoring the men and women who serve and have served our country this week. VUCommodores.com will feature daily content all week expressing the appreciation for our military. This weekend the Commodores continue our Salute to Service at our basketball doubleheader when women’s basketball takes on Middle Tennessee (6 p.m.) and the men’s team squares off against Austin Peay (8:30 p.m.). We’ll conclude our Salute on Saturday – Veteran’s Day – at the football game against Kentucky. Details for Saturday’s game will be released later this week.
We kick off the week with Athletics Director David Williams and Deputy AD/SWA Candice Lee discussing their fathers’ roles in the military. Williams’ father served as a member of the legendary Tuskegee Airmenwhile Lee’s father served in both the Air Force and the Army.
