Center director Rod Gragg said the new name is the result of long-term support CresCom Bank has committed to the center over the course of the next 10 years.
Originally founded in 2010 in a partnership with the U.S. Library of Congress, the center is located in the Coastal Science Center on CCU’s east campus.
“We will be able to focus more on collecting and preserving the oral history of American veterans in partnerships with the Library of Congress and service branch archives; promoting outreach programs designed to encourage public recognition of the service and sacrifices of veterans; and conducting research into American military history,” he said. “Through its longtime support for the Center for Military and Veterans Studies and other actions, CresCom Bank has demonstrated a true heart for America’s veterans and active duty military.”
