Thanking Our Beta Pi Heroes This SeasonIn honor of Veterans Day last month, we have been compiling a list of our Beta Pi servicemen and veterans as well as their stories with your help! During this holiday season, we’d like to thank our Beta Pi heroes who can’t be home for the holidays and all our veterans who’ve spent holidays without their families in order to serve our country.

Please review the list below of our Beta Pi heroes and leave your comments in the box at the bottom. Help us tell the stories, tell us who we’re missing, and feel free to leave your notes of gratitude to these brothers willing to sacrifice for the protection of our freedoms. If you have a hero to add or have longer stories and photos to send, CLICK HERE.
