Thirty young men and women recited the Oath of Enlistment to become U.S. Marines on Thursday in a ceremony at UBS Arena. The young men and women, who have signed up to serve their country, also took a tour of the arena construction site after completing the ceremony. 

"This was a pretty incredible moment," said Mike Ryan, Executive Sponsor of the UBS Veterans Network and Divisional Vice Chairman, UBS Global Wealth Management. "Watching some young men and young ladies take the oath of office to defend our country, but also to be in this incredible venue that's going to be the home for the Islanders in the future, is a great experience."

UBS offers the Enlisted Veterans Apprenticeship Program (EVAP) and the Veterans Associate Program (VAP), a pair of initiatives to support veterans after their service. Learn more here.

"We recognzied an opportunity and an obligation," Ryan said. "An opportunity to tap into the incredible skills and leadership qualities that are developed as part of our military, but also an obligation for us to make sure we are of service to our veterans and their families and support them. They've been in service to our country, acquired incredible skills and leadership qualities and now to put them to work for our company is an extraordinary opportunity for us."
