The institution's Lisner Auditorium has long been considered a national historical landmark ever since it opened its doors in 1946. It has held several legendary events in the past and is ideal in accommodating the high volume of service members expected to attend.
The Ceremony will begin with Veterans and celebrities arriving on the Red Carpet followed by Veteran organizations being honored for their service. Immediately following the award ceremony, VIP dinner and The Official After Party of The Veterans Awards will commence. As a university rooted in an era when America overcame a great deal, George Washington University's Kogan Plaza serves as the perfect platform in taking our Veterans and guests back in time. The After Party is an event that will be filled with many classic themes of the 1940's.
