Thank You Troops: A Special Veterans Day Blog

Happy Veterans Day! Every year on November 11, people all across the U.S. take time out of there day to give thanks to those men and women who have served our country in the military. According to, there are approximately 23.2 million military veterans in the United States. While these men and women should be recognized more than once a year, today is a day to recognize all those who have served to protect our country.

The Hoop Group is primarily known for helping young men and women excel in the game of basketball. While it prides us to see so many of our alumni reach their dreams of playing in the NBA, the majority will excel in something other than basketball over the course of their lifetime. Of the total number of Hoop Group Alumni, 20 are currently enrolled in college at a military based institution. On this day, we would like to recognize those 20 below:
